Your students will be enthralled with voices from the past through this stations activity. Students will visit 8 stations discussing the lives of people in slavery. Most of the documents come from the stories of those who lived through slavery, and I included a photograph of the individual 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 examine the experience of 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:

  • House Slavery
  • Field Slavery
  • Housing Conditions
  • Food Rations
  • Clothing for Enslaved People
  • Punishment of Enslaved People
  • The Resistance of Enslaved People
  • The Resilience of Enslaved People
