THE STORY OF THE NOT-SO UNDERGROUND RAILROAD




       Name________________________________


                Student Packet
All Aboard!!!

Dear Student,

      You are about to take an exciting trip back in time. Your trip will take
you to the time of slavery and the Underground Railroad. No one is quite sure
where the name "Underground Railroad" came from. Things that are
underground are generally invisible. Because the operations of the Underground
Railroad were secret, they were invisible to most people. Although slaves had
been escaping for many years, the name was given to the network around the
1830s, at the same time that railroads were beginning to carry passengers
across the United States. Because the routes of the escapes were a secret, it
was as if the journeys were underground and out of sight.

     On your trip, you will meet a few of the significant heroes of the
Underground Railroad and learn how they helped slaves reach freedom. You will
learn about secret codes and phrases used to communicate. You will also learn
about the Underground Railroad in North Carolina. Through the use of
various texts, you will learn about the past and its importance to our lives
today. The events during this time, reminds us that we must continue to
work for peace, equality, and tolerance of differences of others not only in
our own country but also throughout the world.

     You will use the literature and other resources to learn new and
interesting vocabulary, comprehension, and ways to connect to the text.
This packet will provide you with ideas and new ways of learning about the
Underground Railroad.

     Buckle up and enjoy your ride on the Underground Railroad.

                 CHARACTER TRAIT AND EVIDENCE ANALYSIS
A character’s actions, speech, and thoughts affect their personality. The way the act has an
effect on other characters. The type of language a character use and the environment they
are in can provide information about them. Character traits are adjectives that describe a
character.

After reading the book, The Drinking Gourd, choose a character and use his speech, actions,
and thoughts to decide what traits he has and reference the text to support your
inferences/conclusions.

Use the Character Trait and Evidence Analysis chart to identify one of the main characters of
the story and their traits. A list of traits is attached for you to use or you can come up with
your own.

1. Brochure
   Create an interesting brochure that tells about the Underground Railroad. You
   can use any information you have learned in this unit.


2. ABC Book Page
   We will be creating a class ABC book about the Underground Railroad. Design a
   page for the book by choosing a letter of the alphabet and telling about a
   significant person, event, or item associated with the Underground Railroad. You
   will design and illustrate your page and write a brief paragraph explaining what
   your letter represents. You can use your Alphabox sheet to help you come up
   with some ideas.


3. Quilt
   Design your own quilt squares. You will need to have 4-6 squares. The squares
   can depict a coded message, a famous leader, or a scene from the Underground
   Railroad. On the back of your poster board, write one to two sentences
   explaining each quilt square. All of the squares will later be put together to make a
   class quilt.


4. Scatter Sheet
When slavery was legal, abolitionists in the North wrote articles and pamphlets that
spoke out against its evils. Some abolitionists handed out flyers, known as “scatter
sheets” that publicized the successes of the Underground Railroad. You are to
create a scatter sheet with an image and slogan that speaks out against slavery or
encourages support for the Underground Railroad. Remember to create an eye-
catching and effective message.


5. You Are the Reporter
Pretend you are a reporter during the time of slavery. Make up 8-10 questions you would ask to
a slave master, slave, passenger, conductor, stationmaster, or abolitionist. Your questions have to
relate to the individual person and the role he/she played in the Underground Railroad and
slavery. Interview a classmate and have him/her answer your questions.
