Introduction
  • The life of a slave in the 1800s was a very
    hard one. Slaves were often sold to owners far
    from their families. The only way out of a life
    of slavery was to wait for your master to free
    you or escape. This one chance at freedom is why
    many chose to take a ride on the Underground
    Railroad.

3
Process
  • You will work in groups of three, taking on the
    role of escaping slaves. First, you need to find
    out what your life as a slave is like. Will your
    group chose to escape?
  • You must make your escape from your plantation in
    Montgomery, Alabama to the promised land. Your
    group must learn about the underground railroad
    and those who will be helpful to you on your
    journey. You must then plan your escape route.
  • Now its time for you to take a ride on the
    underground railroad! Get ready for an exciting
    adventure
  • Finally, each person must produce a quilt square
    telling of your escape to freedom and present it
    to your group. The quilt squares will be joined
    together and displayed outside the classroom.

Task 1- Life as a slave
  • What was life like for slaves on a plantation?
    As you read, think about the differences between
    how the slaves and their masters lived. Would you
    stay and remain a slave or take your chances at a
    better life?

Task 2- The Plan
  • Your group has made its decision- escape is the
    only answer! Now you must learn about the
    underground railroad and its conductors. Pick
    two of the people highlighted on the website and
    read about them.
  • Click Here
  • Next, you must plan your escape from the
    plantation in Montgomery, Alabama to Toledo,
    Ohio. Once youre in Toledo you will board a boat
    for Canada. You will plot your escape route on
    the blank United States map, using the
    underground railroad site map. Correctly label
    all the states you will pass through and color
    your route to freedom red.

Task 3- All Aboard!
  • Time to ride the Underground Railroad!
  • Get ready for a perilous journey aboard the
    freedom train to a new life in the promised
    land. You will need to be brave, smart, and a
    little lucky to make your journey a safe and
    successful one.
  • Good Luck!

Task 4- Making a Quilt Square
  • Gather your supplies tag board square, crayons,
    colored pencils or markers.
  • Put your name on the back of the square. Divide
    the square into 4 parts (they do not have to be
    equal).
  • Think about the things you learned. You need to
    illustrate 2 facts about the underground railroad
    and 2 facts about a person you read about.
  • You may use pictures you draw, facts you write,
    symbols, or a combination to illustrate your
    facts.
  • Be creative and have fun!
  • Be prepared to present your quilt square to your
    group.

Conclusion
  • Congratulations on your successful journey to the
    promised land aboard the underground railroad!
    It was a difficult and sometimes scary adventure
    but it was worth it. Now you have a greater
    appreciation of what some of your fellow citizens
    have gone through to enjoy the freedom we
    cherish.
