Carnival of Homeschooling

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day (And a free word search)

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Saint Patrick’s Day is really just another day around our house, except there is a lot of green. Milk seems to magically turn green, and eggs do too. We do try to add in a little themed fun throughout our school day. When AJ was younger that included making shamrocks out of paper and learning about rainbows. Now I have to be a little more creative.

Free Saint Patrick's Day Word Search

One way we slip a little fun into our day is with her morning work. Once in a while I will have her do a puzzle, riddle, or word search instead of her normal work. Holidays are the best time to change things up. When AJ wakes up she will find a Pot of Gold word search to do, and I have decided to give a copy of it to all of my readers.

You can download it here!

Harriet Tubman Unit Study

*This post was sponsored by Family Christian. I received some form of compensation for writing this post.*

There are so many wonderful people who have made America the place it is today. Since February is Black History Month we decided to study an amazing woman, Harriet Tubman. Currently in our regular history curriculum we are studying Moses, so what better person is there to study, than the Moses of her people, Harriet Tubman.

Free 19 page unit study on Harriet Tubman

Did you know that Family Christian has a few different resources about Harriet Tubman? They have so many more amazing items than I would have ever guessed. After a quick look at their website I decided to purchase Harriet Tubman Freedom’s Trailblazer. It looked like a fun book geared for kids.

Harriet Tubman Freedom’s Trailblazer is part of the Childhood of Famous Americans series. The books are historical fiction but stick to the spirit and values that influenced the person’s development. The books are written on a reading level that is suitable for kids eight to twelve.


Harriet Tubman: Freedom's Trailblazer
When you are dealing with such a horrible part of history you never know how a book is going to depict the bad parts of history. I don’t want a book that sugar coats history and downplays the violence, but I also don’t want a book that is so full of violence that it scares my child. I think that Harriet Tubman Freedom’s Trailblazer is a happy medium. The book talks about the violence and the horrible things that happened to many of the slaves. It talks about the struggles they faced and makes history come to life in a personal way. You aren’t learning about some random person, but a person who has hopes and dreams. You learn about someone who has a family but doesn’t get to see all of them. It gives a very personal view.

The violence of the time is talked about but not in too much detail. You learn about a slave who was branded with a branding iron when he tried to run away and the possibility of getting half of their foot cut off if they were caught.  The “n” word is used frequently in the book by the slave owners, but I think it really depicts the way the slaves were talked to. There is violence but it is necessary to study about that part of history. The best part of the book is that it shows how Harriet put her trust in God even through horrific times.

I learned a lot about Harriet Tubman by reading this book, so I decided to create a free unit study about it. It is a 19 page study that includes reading comprehension worksheets, suggested activities, and other topics to study. To get the most use out of the study you will need the book, Harriet Tubman Freedom’s Trailblazer. But there are many fun ideas that you can use even without the book.  Click the link below to download your copy.

Harriet Tubman Study

Harriet Tubman DVD

To go along with the book I also purchased the Nest Family Entertainment video, Inspiring Heroes Harriet Tubman. It is a 45 minute animated video about the life of Harriet Tubman. Since the video is only 45 minutes long it doesn’t go into a lot of details about Harriet but it is a great overview of her life and the underground railroad for younger children.  We really like the Inspiring Heroes DVDs because they add a visual aspect to our studies.

Adventures in Odyssey: For God & Country

The final item I purchased was Adventures in Odyssey For God and Country. It is an audio drama depicting twelve different stories on American History. We haven’t listened to the entire thing yet, but we listened to the three part story all about the underground railroad. It didn’t mention Harriet Tubman, but it did give another aspect to the hardships of the underground railroad.

When we put those three resources together I felt we had a great idea about who Harriet Tubman was as a person. I also found a few other resources to round out our study of this amazing woman.

There are two different games about the underground railroad.

  • Scholastic – this one is not as interactive, but it is educational and fun.
  • National Geographic – this one is available online free or on Kindle for a small fee. It has an Oregon Trail feel where you make choices to determine if you will make it to freedom.

Here are some free printable resources

  • Scholastic – There are a lot of worksheets for different grade levels.
  • Word searches – This is a fun word search about the underground railroad.

There are so many wonderful African Americans who played a major part in American history. We should be learning about them as part of history, but take a special effort to learn even more each February. Who are you going to learn more about this Black History month?
