Underground Railroad

Underground Railroad A virtual journey on the Underground Railroad for students in grades 4 - 10. Using realtime data on the Web, students keep journals where they respond to problems that they encounter along the way. Students also have an opportunity to participate in contemporary ethical discussions on topics related to slavery.

From the site:

The year is 1850. The Fugitive Slave Law has just passed -- bad news for you and your small group of fellow runaways who have just managed a narrow escape from slavery in the South landing in Ripley, Ohio. Alas, you thought you would be free. Now, you're going to have to carefully navigate your way to freedom through Ohio to Canada with the help of the Underground Railroad.
