I do a similar project with my middle school classes each March. Got the idea years ago from the National Women's History Project. "Putting a Stamp on History ... Women Who Made a Difference."
Since textbooks lack a lot of information about women's contributions world-wide, this project fits perfectly. It involves research skills, technology-graphic design and word processing and persuasive writing.
