Henry's Freedom Box...

We are beginning a unit on Black History.  One of our favorite books is Henry's Freedom Box.  This true story portrays a man named Henry who makes a harrowing journey in a wooden crate to give himself the opportunity to have freedom.  He was one of many courageous people who risked their lives to have freedom for themselves and their families.       

We decided to give one of our most prized possessions and keep it in a freedom box for one night.  We wrote about it today and were very PROUD of our decisions.  We know that Henry took more courage and was more brave than we will ever have to be, but are trying to understand that we have to give up things at times to make things better.  It was a great learning experience!
