This is a culminating project that I use with my fourth graders at the end of our Underground Railroad unit. Students imagine that they are runaway slaves, and write a narrative to describe their journey. The final product is an eight-page booklet detailing the challenges a runaway slave might have faced on the way to freedom.
The file includes a detailed, page-by-page description of the final product. It also includes a planning sheet, so that students can write and/or illustrate their ideas before they create their booklets.
I hope your American Historians enjoy this project! Please feel free to contact me with questions and/or feedback!
Thank you for downloading!
