Video Wednesday: Underground Railroad

In this video from Scholastic Book Fairs, author Christopher Paul Curtis guides us through the actual settlement of Buxton, Canada, so students can visualize the setting of Elijah of Buxton and imagine what it was like to live in this community of freed and escaped slaves.

This is just one of the videos in the Underground Railroad Book Videos collection.  For the mother of all Underground Railroad lesson plans, visit Scholastic's Underground Railroad Student Activity where you'll find reader's theater scripts, primary sources, writing prompts and web hunts for grades 4-12.
