Our Harriet Tubman lesson plan introduces students to Harriet Tubman and her accomplishments, including information about the Underground Railroad. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and use each of the letters in Harriet Tubman’s name to describe Harriet or to tell a fact about her life, including decorating the page with drawings or other designs when completed; they will then present their poster to the rest of the class, sharpening their presentation and public speaking skills. Students are also asked to match people who were significant in Harriet Tubman’s life with their description.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Harriet Tubman, list facts about her life, and explain/ define the Underground Railroad.
