Escape to Freedom

Escape to Freedom

This interactive adventure will take your students on a tour of the Underground Railroad — and check their understanding along the way!

First, share the appropriate Activity for your grade level. Allow your students to watch the video next to the #1, then have them answer question #1. If they get it correct, they will advance along the journey. They can continue to travel along the path until they reach freedom!

Teacher TipWhen you’re finished, reflect on learning by discussing the most surprising or interesting things your students discovered along the way! Here are a couple of questions to get your students thinking:
  1. The Underground Railroad helped lead slaves to freedom. Would you have been willing to take this risk without being certain you would make it to freedom?
  2. If someone asked you to teach them about the Underground Railroad, what would you say?

Awesome…it’s what you do!!!
