With Martin Luther King Jr. day on Monday and Black History month approaching I thought this tidbit from Richard Byrne's amazing blog Free Technology for Teachers was a goodie not to miss. This latest interactive from Scholastic takes students on a virtual trip from a southern plantation to freedom in Ohio. The trip is divided into four sections; On the Plantation, Escape, Reaching Safety, and Reaching Freedom. In each section students can listen to short narrated stories and browse through slideshows. The slideshow images are accompanied by short narrated captions. The link is all set for you in the links tab above. Thanks Richard!
