This download is for my latest EZ Bulletin Board Creation Kit: Harriet Tubman Bulletin Board Creation Kit. After doing some research with my class on the Underground Railroad my students suggested that we should make our next bulletin board on the woman who helped save thousands of runaway slaves, Harriet Tubman.
This board bundle has everything you would need to decorate your classroom bulletin board, class wall, or doorway. It even comes with two fun class assignments/projects about "The Code of the Road" and "Quilting Codes to Freedom". Both of these activities teach students about the creativity it took to organize an escape to freedom directly under the watchful eyes of slavers. Students will learn about codes and songs used to pass secret directions and how quilting became a creative message sending format. Within these projects, students get to learn about the secret codes, create wanted posters, and even design their own freedom quilt. My students loved these activities!
Here's what's included with the download........
- Large Printable Image of Harriet Tubman (Prints to Multiple Pages Automatically and Comes in a Variety of Sizes) Includes single-page print all the way up to a gigantic 7 page wide x 7-page tall poster print and every size in-between.
-Large Printable Sign "Harriet Tubman: Lighting the Road to Freedom" (The sign is set up to print in a variety of sizes)
-Printable Bulletin Borders Depicting Slaves Escaping along the Underground Railroad.
-Student Activity #1 "The Code of the Road" and Student Wanted Posters (Students learn about the codes passed along through song and other mediums then attempt to write their own secret message.)
-Student Activity #2 "Quilting to Freedom" (Students learn about the secret symbols and signs used within quilting patterns then attempt to design their own secret quilt panel. Students can cut out their original quilt panel to create a large classroom "Freedom Quilt")
This bulletin board creation kit allows you to create many different boards with a variety of different options included.
Thank you so much for taking the time to view my work.
