Today is just one of those days when I’m staring at this blank space, and feel I have nothing to say,
except to wish two of my three sister-in-laws a “complete and speedy recovery!”
See ya on the Net,

#2. At Last, An End to Tedious Internet Searching!
If you know the right sites, the Internet is a
powerful educational tool. But which sites do
you recommend? How do you find them?
How many hours do you spend searching?
Let me help you.
#3. Harriet Tubman
by Barbara J. Feldman
Harriet Tubman Printable (** for premium members only)
In 2003, New York Governor George E. Pataki established March 10 as Harriet Tubman Day. Harriet Tubman was born a slave in 1820, but escaped north to freedom in 1849. Instead of enjoying her newfound freedom, however, she returned south nineteen times to rescue hundreds of others. Because of the number of black American slaves that Tubman lead to freedom, she is often called the Moses of her people.
America’s Library: Harriet Tubman
Published by the Library of Congress, America’s Library is written for upper elementary and middle school students. Harriet Tubman’s story is told with four articles about her childhood and her work as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. Other American heroes are listed in categories such as Activists & Reformers, Leaders & Statesmen Adventurers & Explorers.
Enchanted Learning: Harriet Tubman
“Araminta Harriet Greene was born a slave in Maryland. In 1844, Harriet married John Tubman, who was a free man. She escaped slavery in 1849 and traveled north.” For elementary students, Enchanted Learning has a short Tubman bio, a hyperlinked time line, and related printable activity pages. My favorite printables are the quiz and coloring pages (especially those that contain both the quiz and the coloring!)
Harriet Tubman & The Underground Railroad for Children
“The students in Mrs. Taverna’s second grade class at Pocantico Hills School in Sleepy Hollow, New York have been learning about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad.” And, boy, do they have a lot of work to share with you! They’ve created a time line, a quiz, a Harriet Tubman photo gallery, and a map of her 130-mile route to freedom. The students have written poems, character sketches and crossword puzzles. I suggest you visit.
