The history of American Immigration

I recently had the opportunity to chaperone a trip to Ellis Island- a place that brings immigration close to home (my grandfather arrived along with millions of others).  America’s Heritage: A History of Immigration is an interactive timeline complete with images, videos, and more.  Help your students see the big (and continuing) picture of immigration.

  1. I fondly remember our work at Ellis Island! What grade level took the trip?

  2. 5th grade TAG class- we had a great time and the weather was warm!
