Product Description
Your students will be enthralled with voices from the past through this stations activity. Students will visit 8 stations discussing the lives of slaves. Most of the documents come from the stories of those who lived through slavery, and I included a photograph when possible. They will take notes as they visit each station and read the words of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, see the scars of a slave known only as Gordon, and many others. This documents will spark discussion, and peak your students curiosity! There are 27 primary sources in all, and 8 stations for students to visit, including:
