She was elected to the House of Representatives in 1987, and continues to serve today. After reading a short biography of Pelosi's life, children answer a series of who, what, where, why, and how questions to review what they have learned. Designed for a fourth and fifth grade literacy curriculum, Learning About Nancy Pelosi lends well to a unit on civics and women's history.
