The Underground Railroad
I choose my topic because ihave always been interested in the
Underground Railroad and I have also wanted to learn about the history of
African Americans. Another big reason for me
choosing my topic was because my teachers in the past have talked over and over
about it to me. I have also done another project about the Underground Railroad.
But the main reason I chose this topic was because at my old school about 57 %
of the school was African American and almost all of my friends were black so I
really have always been interested in the history of the African
I conducted my research by checking out books at the library and looking
on the internet. I also talked too many of my friends about what they know about
it, and many of them told me stories that their parents told them. They also
told me things that they have learned in school. I looked up everything they
told me see if it was all correct and everything was correct. Then I went to a
different library and some of the people there told me about it and some even
helped me find videos and other information on the internet.
I chose the website category because I have been working on the computer
all my life. I also picked the website category because I have an uncle that has
taught me a lot about computers. I have gone to the weebly.com website creator
and first I created an account and then I was ready to start making my website.
I then started on my website and looked up facts, stories, books, vocabulary
words, and more and I created pages for every one of them sections. I also
created a thesis to help explain why I picked my topic and how it had to do
with this year’s topic. I then created my website and worked and worked on the
website Intel it was finally done.
My project relates to this year’s topic because it was the beginning of
the end of slavery. It also relates to this year’s topic because it was used to
get the slaves to freedom or at least to a free state and that was the beginning
of people standing up to the other people of the states and telling them that
slavery was not right instead of just hiding and help the slaves escape by
sneaking them. These are only some of the ways that the Underground Railroad
was a turning point in history.
