PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this activity, students analyze the pushes and pulls that influenced an immigrant to emigrate from their home country. Five sample scenarios are given, and students analyze the motivations. Includes a reading on pushes & pulls in the context of immigration.

In my classroom, students completed this activity in pairs. They had to verbalize their justification to their peers before writing.

I used this to provide my students with background knowledge on immigration before reading the StoryWorks article "The Boston Molasses Flood of 1919." This helped them understand why immigrants move to America. Thanks!

I am so glad to hear that your students were engaged, and that they did demonstrated a deeper understanding! I have used some picture books as a follow up. Let me know if you want a list.

On  April 19, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I am having a difficult time printing this for some reason. The pages are not being recognized by any of my printers. Have you had anyone who has had similar problems with this document?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 20, 2013Jenneke answered:
Hmm... I haven't had anyone contact me about printing problems before. Did it open all right on your computer? Which program are you trying to print from?

Also: if you send me an e-mail (jenneke10 at gmail.com), I will try to send you another copy.

My apologies for any inconveniences!
