Underground Railroad, Route To Freedom

Students participate in a simulation of the Underground Railroad, travelling through the school and stopping at safe houses to rest and eat. They follow the teacher, or "Harriet Tubman," through various rooms in the school, simulating a journey on the underground railroad, and write a letter back to the plantation describing their experience.

For those topics that are not covered fully in the student textbook, Lesson Planet is a fantastic tool to find materials to complement the text and provide both additional instruction and reinforcement to the learning process.
