4th Grade , Social Studies

We have learned about the settling of Ohio and becoming a state.  Now it's onto the Civil War and we'll do a lot of learning about the Underground Railroad since Ohio was so active in this.  The kids LOVE this topic and I hope they come home and share their learning with you.  At the end of this unit, they will write their own historical fiction story about the Underground Railroad using the knowledge they've gained.
