Arlene Weible is my colleague in Library Development and is our expert on government documents. She passed along these resources about the Emancipation Proclamation and the Underground Railroad. The first is probably most appropriate for elementary, and the second for elementary and perhaps some middle schoolers.

[150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation Commemorative Coloring Book:]
150th Anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation: Commemorative Coloring Book: Forever Free (from 2013)

[National Park Service Discovering the Underground Railroad: Junior Ranger Activity Book ISBN: 9780160900181]
Discovering the Underground Railroad: Junior Ranger Activity Book
(Has good biographical and timeline information plus a fun way to create a glossary)

For more ideas about using government documents as sources of informational text, including an ebook about the Emancipation Proclamation that is appropriate for middle schoolers and up, see the Resource Roundup column in the spring 2013 Interchange<https://ola.memberclicks.net/assets/OASL/documents/Interchange/draft%20final%20interchange%20spring%202013.pdf>.
