Unknown Resources

A lot of my summer was spent researching, relearning, and gathering resources for my new curriculum. I uncovered several gems that I wanted to share with you! If you follow me on Pinterest you might have already seen a couple of these. But I have used them in my classroom this past week and WOW! Insane student engagement!

Underground Railroad activity: on the plantation

The image above is from a scholastic lesson/resource. Your students follow 'Walter' from slavery through his escape to freedom. It's very insightful, well done, and very descriptive. One of the best things about this resource is the fact that the pictures are interactive and give a ton of information. Each of the plus marks that you see have a pop up box. Worried about your low readers? No worries, it'll read everything to them if you like. Only focusing on one part of the journey at a time? It's separated into 4 different steps of Walter's journey.

Another fabulous gem is also from Scholastic:


This particular page gives book lists, media, lesson plans,and other resources to cover Abraham Lincoln and his importance during the Civil War.
