        Travel on the Underground Railroad Lesson Plan

        This lesson plan is to be used with Underground Railroad: The William Still Story. It provides students with information about the physical geographic landscape of the Eastern United States of America and Canada between the Atlantic and Mississippi River. Students will plot a path, on the Underground Railroad, from a point in the Southern United States to various points along the way to a safe house in Canada. Students will be required to research the travel route and surrounding areas and find out what obstacles or help they might encounter on their way.
