With this interactive website from Scholastic students will travel back to the year 1860 and follow a young slave as he flees a Kentucky plantation for Canada along the Underground Railroad. Along the way, they can read or listen to the runaway slave describe his terrifying journey from slavery to freedom. They'll discover what life was like as a slave, encounter the dangers of the Underground Railroad, meet brave abolitionists who took great risks to help runaways, and compare life in the North and South. There are four "stops" on this virtual journey, and each one explores a different curriculum theme in American History: On the Plantation: Life as Slave [Theme: Slavery in America]; Escape! The Underground Railroad [Theme: The Underground Railroad]; Reaching Safety: Heroes for the Cause [Theme: Abolitionists and Harriet Tubman]; and Almost Free: Life in the North [Theme: Causes of the Civil War].

This lesson will help the teacher show students how to bring their imaginative narratives to a logical ending. Students often have difficulty while writing imaginative narratives. They tend to get off to a good beginning and then cannot maintain focus well enough to bring their story to an end. Two well-known stories will be used as effective models. The first story will be analyzed by the whole class and the second will be used in an individual hands-on practice activity. Finally, students will summarize what they have learned and how they can use this information when they write an imaginative narrative.
