PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This project is designed to allow the students to expand their knowledge of the Underground Railroad through research and creation. Students will use the website and online research tools to build a PowerPoint, Prezi, or other presentation method that explains various points of the Underground Railroad including: definitions, important people, routes, and a timeline. The project culminates in the students combining their knowledge in the creation of a short historical fiction narrative that details what it would be like to be an escaping slave. This project can be completed individually or as a group effort.

I have, in the past, extended this project by having students actually use their presentation to teach younger students about the Underground Railroad by pairing with a 5th grade class and aligning our units.
