This lesson plan is a three part lesson geared for 5th grade students. The lesson begins with students doing an exercise similar to a KWL chart; the activity is allowing the teacher to see what students already know about slavery. Next, the teacher will perform a read aloud for the students from a book that explains slavery and where the major slave states were. As a final part to the lesson, students will complete research on slavery and compare their findings with what they learned in the read aloud book, as well as to what they already knew prior to the reading and research.
