Big Brother by Annie Fellows Johnston, author of the Little Colonel series, is an easy introduction to the Orphan Trains of the 1800s. Of course, not all of the stories of the orphan trains had a happy ending.  But this story does!
A warm read, and a simple introductory look at the well-intentioned, but sometimes misguided efforts, of those trying to help the large number of orphaned children in the big cities of  America. Learn more about blackberries.  Why do you think they would be a welcomed sight among the children on the train?


As you learn more about the orphan trains, make a list of the good characteristics of the movement and the positive advantages, and also list a few of the negative impacts. PBS American Experience transcript filled with letters and views from the orphans themselves. Click on USA and choose the United States map.  Then have your child chart a course from New Jersey to Kansas, and print!
Lesson plan from PBS that goes with the American Experience show, but stands well on its own.


Unit study from Jennifer Steward that includes research, writing, math, mapping, science, art, music, field trip suggestions, and other areas of interest.  We’ve added a few additional resources.
