Henry's Freedom Box

In second gradem, students read the book Henry’s Freedom Box.

Henry was a slave who mailed himself to Philadelphia in a wooden crate in order to be free. To help understand how he must have felt, students curled up in a ball on top of their desk and had to sit like that for one minute. This only gave us a small idea about how Henry must’ve felt. He was in his box for 27 hours!
