The 5th graders at Orchard Hills participated in a simulation of the Underground Railroad in May. Conductors took the students from station to station until they reach safety in Canada. The students snuck quietly through the halls of the school trying not to get caught and sent back. At each safe house there were station masters who taught the students more about the Underground Railroad and did an activity with the students. It was a fun and educational activity that hopefully helped students learn and understand more about our country's history.
