Scholastic Presents an Interactive Underground Railroad Lesson

Scholastic has developed a new series of interactive lessons about the Underground Railroad. The Underground Railroad Escape from Slavery takes students on a virtual trip from a southern plantation to freedom in Ohio. The trip is divided into four sections; On the Plantation, Escape, Reaching Safety, and Reaching Freedom. In each section students can listen to short narrated stories and browse through slideshows. The slideshow images are accompanied by short narrated captions.

Applications for Education
Each section of The Underground Railroad Escape from Slavery has a teacher's guide and writing activities for students to complete. The Underground Railroad Escape from Slavery is optimized for use on interactive whiteboards. The lessons are appropriate for students in grades three through six.
