Freedom Quilts

Fifth graders create a Freedom Quilt and learn how many African Americans escaped to freedom.  In this Underground Railroad lesson, 5th graders complete a KWL chart on the Underground Railroad, read a book about the Underground Railroad and complete a literature review of the book.  Students view a power point of important facts about the Underground Railroad, read The Secret to Freedom, make quilt squares and put their squares together to make a Freedom Quilt.
