Students recreate slave plantations, Underground Railroad for Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, sixth-graders in Mr. Kareme Thomas's class made their interpretations of slave plantations and the Underground Railroad. 
The Social Studies assignment called for the Southwest campus students to recreate these moments in history. They were allowed to use things like cotton, popsicle sticks, presentation boards and toys.
Harriet Tubman was an escaped enslaved woman who became a “conductor” on the Underground Railroad, leading enslaved people to freedom before the Civil War, all while carrying a bounty on her head, as described in historycom.
Mr. Thomas's students took two Fridays to create their final projects in honor of Black History Month.
