WebQuest: The Underground Railroad was a term used for a network of people, homes, and hideouts that slaves in the southern United States used to escape to freedom in the Northern United States and Canada. The students gain factual information about this organization and the brave people that risked their lives for freedom.

Unspoken: A Story of the Underground Railroad by Henry Cole. Wordless books offer great opportunities to teach inferencing. Readers must be able to infer the story from the illustrations using what they know and what the illustration is showing them. This beautifully illustrated wordless book is an excellent resource for this type of activity.

This is another video from Scholastic showing the children what life in the Pilgrim village was like. (Great segment for comparing and contrasting... fits well with "long ago and today.") The First Thanksgiving: Virtual Field Trips, Videos, and Slideshow
