students on a journey through the Underground Railroad and
discover new ways to explore language arts, music, history,
earth science and social studies. Personalize their experience
with unforgettable stories, letters and photographs. Connect
them with their local communities and their own family histories
and you just might open their minds to new ways of thinking --
about the past, present, and future.
Feel free to use
clips from the film or delve into the resources on this web site.
We hope this guide makes it easy for you to integrate the Underground
Railroad in your classroom. Better yet, we hope your students
will walk away with a greater understanding of freedom and what it
means to be a responsible citizen in today’s world.
