Product Description
Whether your curriculum features Civil War history, the Underground Railroad, African American History or one of our most famous Black Americans — my slide show “Harriet Tubman Ten Things You Should Know” will fill the bill. This 22-page slide show illustrates Tubman’s life and times with over 35 illustrations and maps and enough facts for either middle school or junior high students. The accompanying 15-page script contains nearly 150 facts about Tubman, slavery, and the Underground Railroad. Among the issues covered in the slide show are:
• Tubman’s birth and family life on a tobacco plantation
• Hardships she suffered as a slave
• The critical head injury she suffered as a girl
• Background information and maps on the Underground Railroad
• Tubman’s escape from slavery
• Her work as a conductor on the URR
• Her advice to other slaves on how to escape
• Nursing during the Civil War
• Acting as a scout, spy and troop leader during the Civil War
• Her later life in caring for other African Americans
Honors accorded her by the military and the U.S. government
The script also has notes to the teacher explaining information in the slide show, which may be at odds with generally accepted knowledge about Harriet Tubman. All the information you will find in my unit is based on historical records and not hearsay which was added in more recent times to burnish the legend of this remarkable woman.
This unit also includes two art and writing projects which will allow your students to picture themselves as part of history. One project calls for students to create a map detailing their escape on the Underground Railroad and journal writing in the “I Was There” mode. The second project allows your class to create a quilt with symbols of the Underground Railroad using fabric and acrylic paints. The projects supported with instructions, detailed journal prompts, blank writing templates, and descriptions and colorful depictions of quilt symbols. The slide show is available in both Apple’s Keynote and Microsoft’s PowerPoint, while the documents are downloadable PDFs.
