Activity Overview


In this activity, students will integrate what they have read in Flight to Freedom and the article, "Slavery, the Civil War & Reconstruction - The Underground Railroad". These texts discuss the Underground Railroad, the secrecy, and the system that helped slaves escape to the North.

Have students record and illustrate information from each article in a T-Chart. Side-by-side cells should relate to one another.


Flight to Freedom: The Story of the Underground Railroad

  • Men and women followed codes: agents were reminded their work was illegal, nothing was ever put in writing, and all evidence was destroyed.

  • The physical property was a line of farms running zigzag from the slaves states to Canada.

  • If any traveler was unable to make it to the next station, the agent would hide them in caves.

"Slavery, the Civil War & Reconstruction - The Underground Railroad"

  • People thought slavery was immoral and they took risks to help slaves.

  • Each house told the fugitive where the next station would be.

  • Slaves traveled by night; the North Star was their guide to freedom.
