Life on a Southern Plantation

Let’s explore life on a Southern Plantation.


  • Life on a Southern Plantation by Sally Senzell Isaacs
  • The Kitchen by Bobbie Kalman


This video is a little long, but a teacher (from Minnesota) is providing an interactive lesson for her students.  You could grab a piece of paper, go their classroom wiki, and have your students complete the lesson with her class!  (Note that she does address slavery toward the end of the video)
