This 109 page download contains eight different lesson plans for literary & informational text read alouds. These read alouds are specific to the Underground Railroad. Each plan features reading, writing, listening and speaking. There are also collaborative grouping ideas as well.
The books featured in this plan are as follows:
If You Traveled the Underground Railroad
A Student Friendly Anchor Text I've written entitled: Journey through the Underground Railroad A story told through quilts.
Aunt Harriet's Underground Railroad in the Sky
Harriet Tubman: Biography
Henry's Freedom Box
How Sweet the Sound: Poetry & Songs
Clara & the Freedom Quilt
I have included four different learning crafts. Two for the book 'Henry's Freedom Box', a lantern for Harriet Tubman writing, and a Reflection Glyph in the shape of a train. There are also different worksheets and graphic organizers to go with the stories and concepts. The math worksheets that relate to quilting are super fun! :)
A great complimentary resource to this would be the poetry in my free February Poetry Journal collection.
