This novel packet allows students to dive into the story of Harrison and Samuel, two runaway slaves. Students connect with the story through accessing their prior knowledge about the Underground Railroad and viewing resources (listed for teachers on the last page). Teachers have the flexibility to pick and choose from the remaining activities tying in with reading strategies. Activities include a plot chart and several reading strategies: predictions, making connections, visualizing, asking questions, making judgments, and writing about what they read. 12 pages in length.
