Product Description

These resources were created using the "Immigrants by the Numbers" lesson found here. Students use charts and graphs to create a paper doll and write a short biography about an immigrant arriving in America in the late 1800's/early 1900's.

The immigrant options are:

  • German man, 35 years old
  • Irish woman, 38 years old
  • Italian man, 40 years old
  • Polish boy, 17 years old
  • Jewish girl, 16 years old
  • Polish woman, 25 years old

To create the biography, students answer the following questions:

  • Where you are from
  • Who you came with (if anyone)
  • Your education
  • Your occupation
  • Your living situation
  • Challenges and opportunities of your life in the United States

The sheet with the doll/questions I created be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1u3P-XyIyZ32vioBB2gQ2zeEaDdRrHk8FMJM8bFvJ2Cs/edit?usp=sharing.
