Students will study Henry's Freedom Box - a story of the underground railroad - by describing its pictures and answering relevant, engaging questions. As well, students will analyze the story's use of figurative language and make predictions and inferences.
Additionally, students write a point-of-view journal entry and a response on either the theme or genre to demonstrate their understanding of the story. A rating scale is included for each of these assessments.
This is a great cross-curricular resource for history, social studies, and language. As well, it is perfect for ESL learners.
