Home - Documentary - Geography - Art - Story Writing - Underground to Canada - Visitors/Field Trips

After the completion of our documentary, we were invited by CBE’s Innovative Learning Services to journey through the studies of graffiti. During our graffiti studies we were intrigued by the idea of hidden messages within the TAGS we viewed. From here we became interested in learning more about the hidden codes in our culture. During a class meeting someone mentioned the Underground Railway and how it was a secret code. Ms. Temrick and Mrs. Fischer introduced us to Barbra Smucker’s “Underground to Canada” that we enjoyed so much we tuned it into a musical (all 19 chapters of it!). We have enjoyed this last month of rehearsing and making props for our “Underground to Canada” musical.
