Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.
Crawford, Mary; Ruthsdotter, Mary
Suitable for elementary level students, this study unit helps increase students' comprehension of the risks involved in a black person's flight from slavery and of Harriet Tubman's success in leading more than 300 slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Five activity suggestions are followed by a reading on the life of Harriet Tubman. Study questions precede a song which may have served as a map and timetable for slaves. The brief document concludes with a list of recommended resources about Harriet Tubman and other related topics. An accompanying game board, which can be ordered from the publisher, leads students through a series of obstacles in their journey from the southern slave states to freedom in the northern United States and Canada.
