Students are making a quilt square like slaves made.
Ben was a seven foot tall slave who escaped via the Underground Railroad. Eventually, he lived in Buckingham, PA.
We did a good job on our quilt square.
Students comparing their height to that of Ben's/
Student standing in a replica of Ben's shoes - size 21.
Wow - such big shoes!!
Ben is the very tall man in the center of the photo. The Underground Railroad Program highlighted the life of Ben, a slave who escaped captivity, was captured and eventually was set free.
Slaves used a lantern, such as the one seen above, to light their way.
