Social Studies: Empathy for Slaves

Fourth graders listen to the book, From Slave Ship to Freedom Road and discuss how they felt while it was being read. They choose feeling words and write paragraphs about their own experiences. Students observe a slave sale poster and describe how they might have felt. They write journal entries role-playing as slaves, present skits of two slaves having a discussion, or draw pictures of days in the lives of slaves.
