As an introduction to Immigration the students were given a piece of paper with a picture of three immigrants and all of there belongings. The students had to describe what was happening in the picture and guess who the people were. The students worked on tracing a map of the entire world so that they could point out where their ancestors were from. The students used string and a pin to show ancestral history. The students have also worked on a small Reader's Theatre Script/Play to get a basic understanding of why people came to America through Ellis Island. Currently the students are pretending to be an immigrant and creating a passport. There is more to come! Will you make it to America or will you be sent back?
