A broad literature unit that should fit most books for Harriet Tubman. It can also be used independent from a novel and used to supplement a history book or video on Harriet Tubman. This unit will fit in nicely with either the 3rd grade Heroes common core unit or 5th grade Civil War unit.
This unit contains 27 pages of graphic organizers, genre posters, word games, vocabulary activities, writing biographies and prompts, spirituals, figurative language and more.
