The inventory is part of a probate file used to settle the estate of the deceased person and includes the estimated value of each piece of property. Slaves are listed as items of property and the class discusses slave ownership and write an essay in response to the discussion.

I subscribed to Lesson Planet after I started teaching science at my district's alternative school. Science isn't my specialty so it has been a real life saver! I am able to find lots resources to enrich my lessons! It's a tremendous time saver too! Why reinvent the wheel?
