Help me with a lesson that I am being observed! Would love an intro lesson - we are reading about the underground railroad and Harriet Tubman in the basal! I am going to incorporate vocabulary and paraphrasing. Thanks!

Readaloud "Follow the Drinking Gourd"
Google Underground Railroad code -- there are some neat activities were students can decode/create sentences or messages that may have been used then.

I use this one with great interest from the students. There is a readers theater included.

Read "Under the Quilt of Night" by Deborah Hopkinson...great use of words in this book. We had a discussion of what the quilts mean, and then I had students design their own quilts and what they meant. They turned out really well. I incorporated the quilt making in with Math...we used different shapes and used protractors, etc. for the patterns. Hope this helps!
