9781619304901: The Underground Railroad: Navigate the Journey from Slavery to Freedom With 25 Projects (Build It Yourself)

Imagine leaving everything you’ve ever known your friends, family, and home to travel along roads you’ve never seen before, getting help from people you’ve never met before, with the constant threat of capture hovering over your every move. Would you risk your life on the Underground Railroad to gain freedom from slavery?

In The Underground Railroad: Navigate the Journey from Slavery to Freedom, readers ages 9 to 12 examine how slavery developed in the United States and what motivated abolitionists to work for its destruction. The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes and safe houses operated by conductors and station masters, both black and white. Readers follow true stories of enslaved people who braved patrols, the wilderness, hunger, and their own fear in a quest for freedom.

In The Underground Railroad, readers dissect primary sources, including slave narratives and runaway ads. Projects include composing a song with a hidden message and navigating by reading the nighttime sky. Amidst the countless tragedies that centuries of slavery brought to African Americans lie tales of hope, resistance, courage, sacrifice, and victory truly an American story.

From the Author:

School Library Connection September 1 issue

The third title in Cumming’s Build It Yourself series leads students in an exploration of the tens of thousands of African-American men, women, and children who escaped slavery on the Underground Railroad with the help of those who risked their lives in the years before the Civil War. an excellent resource for helping students understand the troubling times prior to the Civil War and could serve as a resource for an entire unit of study. Highly Recommended
