    How about... a fake/toy whip, a printed out copy of the emancipation proclaimation, a small weight (to represent the one she got hit with), a broom (cuz that's how she got married) and... uh... a picture of lincoln??

    1)Draw a map of Harriet's route to freedom:

    2)Show a map of the Underground Railroad routes

    3)Show a red or bright cloth that if tied to the door signaled that it was a safe home to enter.

    4)Print a Negro spiritual- The spirituals had double meanings, and would signal to the slaves that it was time to travel by water so as to lose the scent of their trail and to confuse slave catchers while at the same time not giving away their hidden message to any others who may have been listening.

    5)Red Roses - Each rose in a vase indicated the number of fugitives hiding within a home or "station".

    6)Black Pots - If a pot was turned upside down it was not safe to enter, and if the pot was sitting right side up, it meant that it was a safe home or place to enter.

    7)Musical Notes - The fugitives communicated by songs and music.

    8)The North Star- her guide in the night that gave her hope and pointed her in the direction of freedom.

    ***Good luck on your project.

    hummmm...sounds hard but dont worry. If you 've read the bio then you should knw what kind she was! I mean was she powerful or scared or happy or eager to free slaves? Just think of it and then try to think things that go with her nature. What kind of clothes she used to wear? shabby? Then you can get shabby clothing. She was also tricky. so you can get something that is tricky and smart! =) lol with ur project!
