Wyoming Quarter Lesson Plans

Overview

Do you know that we have a collection of lesson plans based on the Wyoming quarter?

Activity

The 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), and Voting for Change (4–6).  After that, check out the rest of these state-specific plans, which are FREE to download and are available in sets designed specifically for grades K–1, 2–3, and 4–6.

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.
