Want to include spatial thinking in your ELA unit? Try this mini unit on the Underground Railroad and Freedom Quilts! After reading a mentor text, students create their own Underground Railroad escape plan and turn their physical map into instructions on a Freedom Quilt! Suggested text is Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt, but you can use your favorite too! Best part? It is already sheltered for you with SIOP numbers in the margins.
Use the suggested resources to add multiple intelligences to your class, including music!
