Wyoming Quarter Lesson Plans
Do you know that we have a collection of lesson plans based on the Wyoming quarter?
50 State Quarters® Program lesson plans are now available on the United States Mint H.I.P. Pocket Change™ Web site for you to use in your classroom!
Take a look at the lesson plans created specifically to celebrate the Wyoming quarter:
"W" Is for Wyoming (K and 1),
A Cowboy's Life (2 and 3),
Make a "Connection"
The Wyoming quarter features a bucking horse and its rider, as well as the state motto, "The Equality State". Wyoming women were the first in the nation to vote, serve on juries, and hold public office. Across the nation, women worked hard to gain the same rights as the women in Wyoming. Susan B. Anthony's (1820–1906) brave fight to get women the right to vote earned her a place on the dollar coin. She is known as a founder of the women's suffrage movement. Examine the Susan B. Anthony dollar with students. Ask students to research and compare the voting rights of women in Wyoming to those of women across the United States in the 1800s.
