Using technology to Research

Grade 6P and 6PS partner up and use Underground Railroad secret codes to write letters to help salves escape to freedom. Ask us how they found their way north in the day and night time. 

Is the Underground Railroad a real Railroad?

Students are investigating the who, what, where, when, why and how of the Underground Railroad to Canada. They are using an amazing resource from Scholastic to help them understand each part of a runaway slave's journey. You can check it out here:
