The Underground Railroad...Escape from Slavery is an Internet scavenger hunt I created using Scholastic's website. The students read information about slave experiences, listen to slave stories, and follow the steps on a slave's journey on the Underground Railroad, while filling out a scavenger hunt guide to reflect on their understanding.
While some of the questions are literal questions, others require the students to analyze the information and make decisions based on what they have learned. This allows the students to pull in their own perspective.
This Internet scavenger hunt is an engaging tool to help students not only learn the facts about the history of the Underground Railroad, but to also think about the perspectives of the people involved. This is always an activity my students enjoy!
