What Was the Underground Railroad?
Learning history is so much more than dry boring facts regurgitated to fill in worksheets and quizzes. Rather, learning history should be about understanding the people and events of people - people who are just like us, people who have experienced events that changed their life as they knew it.
Covering a variety of American history events that have changed our world, this well-written series will engage children and help them understand the impact of the events that occurred during each time period. Black and white illustrations, maps, and sixteen pages of authentic photos bring a real-life experience to our children. Timelines and a bibliography are also included to enhance learning. These would make wonderful read-aloud or engage children in self-reading. An appealing supplement to any history program or to keep learning fresh through the summer. PB. 106 pgs. ~Deanne
