 Underground Railroad Classroom Program

February, Massie Heritage Center presented an in-class program titled, "Journey on the Underground Railroad," for over 3,200 students in grades K-12 from 20 different schools in the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System. Heritage Specialists utilized artifacts, technology, and story-telling to guide students through a harrowing tale about a young brother and sister on a southern plantation who have lost their entire family to yellow fever. Aware that they are about to be sold into slavery and will probably be separated, they decide to take a perilous journey on the Underground Railroad and escape to their freedom in the north. Using an inquiry based approach, Heritage Specialists guided students through decisions that eventually lead the characters to freedom. This program was designed to align with 4th and 5th grade standards, but can easily be adapted for any K-12 classroom.
