What person would you help your daughter choose for a history project

Recommended Posts

I am having a terrible time helping my 1st grade daughter choose a person for her History Night project. It is just a simple board with information about the person, but I can't seem to think of anyone.


I would like it to have the following criteria:


  • Not too common (Like Abe Lincoln)
    • I prefer a girl
      • Someone who we can easily find information on
        • Someone who isn't too difficult to understand why they are famous


Any suggestions?

Princess Olga of Kievan Rus


This one answers most of your initial questions



These give further information






Kivean Rus was, at the time, one of the most important European States. It became a center of learning and culture.


The above sites should give you ample information for a simple board and I highly doubt that anyone else will have done this.

Here's a list of a whole bunch of them, complete with fact sheets, website links and sometimes even pictures.





Another site that lists women by categories, such as adventure, beauty and fashion, medicine and health:




National Women's Hall of Fame




First Ladies of the U.S.:




4,00 years of women in science:




And last, you can take a quiz to find out which famous historical woman you are:
