My Favorite Unit

When I was a classroom teacher this was the time of year I started to prepare my favorite social studies unit. I always tied it into reading, too!

I loved teaching about the Underground Railroad. What I loved even more is the ways I could tie it into my home state of New York! This aspect always made the history lessons more real to my 4th graders. I hope you are lucky enough to have something wonderful in your hometown to connect to your lessons!

Here are my favorite books that I have used:

Here are two websites to use with 4th or 5th graders:

Traveling the Underground Railroad

Scholastic's Underground Railroad

Happy Reading!
