The Underground Railroad in Canada

If you teach black history in North America to your students, this Web Site produced by Parks Canada presents lessons about the Underground Railroad. These lessons target students from 10 to 14 years old. The five topics covered by the lessons are :

  • Who am I? What am I? (Quiz)
  • Deborah Brown - Free at Last, Free at Last!
  • Underground Railroad Novel Studies
  • The Underground Railroad Pattern of Settlement
  • Secret Songs and Words of the Underground Railroad

Each lesson includes an overview, a purpose, the objectives, resource material, activities as well as expectations. Expectations are from the Ontario curriculum for social studies, history and geography, however these concepts could also be covered in other curriculums. Resource material includes all the texts that students will need to read. The page layout is better suited for Web browser than paper. Activities lack many pictures which are necessary with this age group. The information presented is very interesting and very appropriate for these students.
