Following the interactive National Geographc website, this complete URR Unit allows students to learn history, background, biographical information, history and practice making choices from a slave's POV. Reinforces internet navigational skills practice and following directions for technology as well.
Work guide is 8 pages long and gives very specific details on what to look for to enhance understanding of the URR and Harriet Tubman. Challenging for Gr. 3 (or can be used with small groups) this is great as a computer lab activity or homework asignment for extra credit.
Lots of nifty facts, photos and intesting details typical of the quality National Geographic you've learned to love and respect.
Highly engaging, students may work in small groups or as individual. Covers routes, safe houses, quilts, map skills navigation by stars/night school, and famous Black Americans who were intrumental in the ongoing rights for people of color in the 1800's.
This will take a good 3-5 days, even with older and experienced students. Only one center page shown of 8. 50+ entries and questions. This was very labor intensive!!
This unit based on the fantastic quality of National Geographic you've come to depend on. You won't be disappointed!
