3rd graders learn about gender stereotyping

Third graders have a gender stereotyping mini-unit prior to reading the book Marty McGuire. First, they brainstorm a list of words and phrases about boys and girls. Next, they look at advertisements and consider what messages the advertisements are sending. The students find examples of stereotypes in the ads and then recreate the ads so that they are no longer gender stereotypical.
