Is the Underground Railroad a real Railroad?

Students are investigating the who, what, where, when, why and how of the Underground Railroad to Canada. They are using an amazing resource from Scholastic to help them understand each part of a runaway slave's journey. You can check it out here:
The Underground Railroad


  1. That was so much fun! Amrita and I thought that finding the secret passages/codes was amazing, because it was so similar to solving a mystery which the abolitionists used to help the slaves seek freedom!

  2. So glad you and Amrita found it fun to learn about this very important historical event. On Monday please remind me to add the word abolitionists to our word wall.

  3. Learning all of this was so much fun! I learned things I never knew before like how the slaves escaped and many more facts! Thank You!
