Follow the Drinking Gourd! From the United States into Canada, Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad helped slaves escape to freedom.
Students research information about the life of Harriet Tubman and her role in the Underground Railroad in the United States and Canada.
Ground: Place white paper on a patterned surface. Remove the paper wrappers from earthy colors of Crayola® Crayons. Rub the sides of crayons on the paper to make an earth-textured pattern. With Crayola School Glue, attach the crayon rubbings on the inside of a recycled box lid or piece of cardboard to form the ground.
Sky: Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Using Crayola Tempera Paint and paintbrushes, paint the night sky on cardboard or oak tag. Dry.
With Crayola Scissors, cut a star from white paper. Glue it to the night sky. Add light rays if you like. Glue the night sky into a box lid. Attach folded cardboard to the back for more support if needed.
Cabin: Use corrugated cardboard or peel away the top layer of paper on cardboard to expose the corrugated layer inside. Cut the corrugated cardboard vertically to make a cabin and horizontally to form a roof.
With Crayola Markers, draw a door, windows, and color indentations on the roof. Glue the roof to the cabin. Glue the cabin in front of the painted sky.
Trees and shrubs: Using various shades of green Crayola Crayons, cover a few coffee filters. Draw lines of green and yellow washable marker on top of the crayoned area. Spray the filters with water. Dry.
Cut brown construction paper for tree trunks. Glue coffee filters to trunks and to the background of the diorama. Crumble other coffee filters into a ball and cover them with painted coffee filters to form shrubs. Glue them in front of the cabin.
Harriet Tubman: On white construction paper with Crayola Colored Pencils, draw a picture of a Harriet Tubman dressed in clothing typical of the 1800s. Use Crayola Multicultural Crayons or Multicultural Markers for her face and hands. Glue her to the ground in front of the cabin. If needed, glue a craft stick to her back for support.
Star Quilt: On white paper, sketch a patchwork quilt and color it with Crayola Fabric Crayons. The design will transfer in reverse. Press hard so the colors will be bright when they are transferred to fabric. Brush away any flecks of crayon.
Cut white fabric that is slightly larger than the crayon design. Color transfers best on fabric that is 100% synthetic or has a high synthetic content. Choose a safe, large, flat location to iron. Make a bed of newspaper. Cover the newspaper with white paper. Place the fabric on the plain paper, face up. Lay your colored design face down on the fabric. Cover with more white paper.
Have an adult iron the fabric: Set an iron on cotton, with no steam, and preheat it. Place the iron in one spot, press down, then lift and move the iron to another spot. Repeat until the entire design has been transferred. Gently lift design paper. Cool.
