Harriet Tubman was an incredible leader who helped free over 300 slaves! Students will be captivated with her story of bravery and determination. This packet tells the story of Harriet Tubman's journey to freedom and her leadership of the Underground Railroad.
The topics discussed in this packet are:
Who was Harriet Tubman?
Life as a Slave
Harriet's Life Work
In this 98 page packet, I've included:
Part 1: Posters to hang in your classroom and to use while introducing Harriet Tubman (real life photographs along with important vocabulary).
Part 2: All About Harriet Tubman: These article pages were designed as a way for you to "hook" your students at the beginning of your unit. You can display the article pages on your document camera as a whole group or print and display during small group instruction.
Part 3: Differentiated All About Harriet Tubman Mini-Books - These are differentiated mini-books that can be used during small group instruction.There are three versions. Each version is slightly easier than the last. I wanted to give you options because I know that many of our students come in reading at different ability levels. It is up to you to pick and choose which articles you use with your groups. You can either print in color and laminate or print them in grayscale. Text-Dependent Response sheets follow!
Real life photographs will enhance your students understanding of Harriet Tubman. I've also provided sheets for students to write a summary.
Part 4: True/False Activity: After learning facts about Harriet Tubman, students will sort the sentences according to whether they are true or false. I've also provided a cut/paste sheet too that requires students to read simple sentences and glue them in the correct column.
Part 5: Graphic Organizers Galore - These graphic organizers, vocabulary books, and independent practice sheets can be used however you wish! I tried to offer you many different options to help meet the needs of your diverse group.
In addition, I've also included links to some fabulous web resources and books!
