Black History Month: Harriett Tubman

As Black History month comes to an end this week, I always like to focus on one of my favorite Black History Heroes ... Harriet Tubman. I found her story to be such a fascinating one. Her bravery and strength allowed her to escape slavery, and help so many more people to freedom, as well!

I usually introduce her story through one of my favorite picture book biographies. I love this book from Scholastic.. it's from their "My First Biography" series. The text is simple and illustrations are bright and beautiful.


I also like to use these two picture books, too!



I then create a timeline of some of the important events that happened in her life, with my students. It's a great way to see how much they were able to absorb from her biography ... fantastic for retelling and comprehension. Then, we create a class story about her life. We use simple sentences, and each student illustrates one of the pages in the class story. The final product is always a masterpiece....












I couldn't help myself  ... I had to share their beautiful illustrations!! They worked so hard!!
 You can grab your copy of the Harriet Tubman Class Story here ... 


Check out my Harriet Tubman Craftivity, your students will love it!
