Free That Slave!

Fifth graders read a variety of books about the experiences of slaves during the Civil War. As a class, they use a map to identify the free and slave states and discuss what they already know about slavery. To end the lesson, they discover how attitudes towards African Americans took time to change and examine the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.
