Escape to Freedom
The Underground Railroad was a network of volunteers who risked their lives to help enslaved people escape to freedom. Share the Escape to Freedom Map, have students watch the first video, and then let them use what they learn to answer the question labeled “1”. If they get it correct, they can advance along the railroad. If they answer all five questions correctly, they’ll conclude a successful escape! If you are looking to teach your students about the Underground Railroad prior to to doing this activity, check out this video!
