Susan B. Anthony was born on February 15, 1820, in Adams, Massachusetts. Susan B. Anthony fought for women’s rights and to end slavery. She is known as the founder of the women’s suffrage movement. On December 13, 1978, she became the first woman to be honored on a U.S. coin when the Susan B. Anthony dollar was issued. The coin was close in size to the quarter and didn’t become very popular, so the Mint stopped producing the coin in 1981. If you have a Susan B. Anthony dollar, it would be a good idea to hang on to it.

Print the pdf: Bouillabaisse Coloring Page, color the picture and if you're brave, try the recipe.

December 14th is Bouillabaisse Day. Bouillabaisse is a highly seasoned Mediterranean soup or stew made of several kinds of fish and shellfish with tomatoes and onions or leeks and seasoned with saffron and garlic and herbs. Making bouillabaisse is a lot of work, but worth the effort. This would make a good project for the older student to try out. Spelling "bouillabaisse" is a challenge in itself.​
