Ellis Island and Angel Island Immigration Journals

This lesson plan is a great conclusion activity to a unit on immigration to the United States during the early 1900s. You can give students the opportunity to take the role of either a European or Asian immigrant moving to the United States. You can give students the choice of what journal they want to do, or you could have two separate writing activities for when you cover immigration.

Ellis Island Immigration Journal

Assignment 1: You are a European immigrating to the United States in the early 1900s. You will write a journal about your trip to the United States and your experiences. Your journal will need to use facts from the notes you have taken while studying Ellis Island and European Immigration.

Angel Island Immigration Journal

Assignment 2: You are an Asian immigrating to the United States in the early 1900s (1910-1940). You will write a journal about your trip to the United States and your experiences. Your journal will need to use facts from the notes you have taken while studying Angel Island and Asian Immigration.

Each journal will follow a five paragraph essay format. Students will have specific prompts for each paragraph to write about.

Example:

4th paragraph will explain what life is like in your ethnic neighborhood in New York. You must state what borough your ethnic neighborhood is in. (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, or Staten Island)

The following great websites can be used by students to write their papers.
