~Underground Railroad~

We had an awesome field trip last week - "Travelin' the Underground Railroad". Here's the description: "Your student's become passengers on the Underground Railroad. They will get firsthand knowledge of some of the dangers experienced by passengers. Step back in time with a conductor who guides passengers through the woods to the nearest station. Passengers learn the secret codes that will keep them safe on their trip to freedom in Canada. Passengers will make a quilt square that teaches them an escape code."

It was one of the best field trips we've had so far. We did part of the field trip outside walking through the woods which was really fun and we spent time down in a cellar hiding and we, also, hid out in a "barn" and in a "home" hiding, too! They didn't want us take pictures but I got a few.
