Why should the world be ashamed of Slavery?
As a class we will ask ourselves this question through our unit of work. First of all, we started our unit of work enacting a slavery auction. Here we are on the playground, taking on the roles of slaves to be sold during an auction, being pulled apart from our families.
We held a slavery auction in our school grounds. We also looked at real life accounts of slavery auctions.
We thought about the emotions connected to slavery. We have learnt about freedom quilts and how they helped slaves escape to the North of America.
