Scholastic has a good Internet Scavenger Hunt on Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad. It’s accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners.
I’ve placed the link on my United States History blog, which contains a year-long interactive curriculum for the subject.
Hi Larry- I have been following your blog for over a year and you have been doing an outstanding job with sharing so many beneficial resources resources – thank you!!! I noticed you were sharing some resources related to black history month- so I thought I would share a robust resource that is originated out of WI. Even though I live in MN 15 miles away from WI – I do a lot of instruction in WI and thought this resource might be of value to you and your readers.
Nick Glass is the co-founder and Principal of http://www.teachinbooks.net This marvelous site provides a time-saving portal to thousands of online resources you can use to explore children’s and young adult books and their authors.It also provides immediate access to useful materials and exciting programs (short movies, audio book readings, book discussion guides, and more) that add a multimedia dimension to reading in the classroom, library, and home.
The latest addition includes Coretta Scott King Book Award Online Curriculum Resource Center—a free, multimedia, online database for educators and families featuring more than 250 original recordings with award-winning authors and illustrators and hundreds of lesson plans. It is a great reading resource as teachers, librarians, and families plan for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Black History Month.
The resource center includes more than nine hours of originally produced audio with Coretta Scott King Book Award (CSK) authors and illustrators talking about their books in two- to three-minute clips. Searches can be executed by author, illustrator, title, grade level, and curriculum area, as well as by the year or specific Coretta Scott King Book Award citation.
In addition to free, online primary source materials (audio recordings and book readings), the collection features hundreds of lesson plans and original movies filmed in the studios of some of the award-winning authors and illustrators.
