UPDATE - I am in the process of updating and adding more slides and map activities to each of these units. As of 2/26/14, Harriet Tubman has been updated to include one powerpoint that is text editable with additional mapping activities. The PDF also includes an extra map activity. I will be updating the rest soon! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
