As I work on my Scope articles and I Survived books, I'm always wishing that I could bring your students along with me on my research journeys. And finally my dream is coming true.

As we celebrate Black History Month in February, the Scope team wanted to share with you and your students some of our favorite quotes of courage and inspiration—not just for this month, but for the entire year.

Are your students as fascinated by the Darvaza gas crater as we are? Why wouldn't they be? It's a giant sinkhole that’s been ablaze for 50 years! Here are some ways that students can further explore this amazing place after they read Scope's short text about the crater.

We are serious animal lovers here at Scope, so it is no surprise that writing the February issue’s Lazy Editor brought us much joy. In this article, students learn about LiLou the pig, an adorably costumed therapy animal who eases travelers’ anxiety at San Francisco International Airport.

Scope's February nonfiction feature "Escape from Slavery," tells the incredible true story of Harriet Tubman. After you and your students read this gripping article, your students can further explore slavery in the United States, the life of Harriet Tubman, and the Underground Railroad through three great resources we've put together.

We’ve compiled some of our favorite books about The Underground Railroad across genres and reading levels so you can mix and match them for your literature circles.
