Product Description
Engage your students with this Industrial Era lesson that can accompany any textbook or stand alone. The main objective of this lesson is to educate students on the Immigration policies and quotas of the turn of the century.

A wonderful supplement to this lesson is to assign your students to read then present a chapter from Jacob Riis' How the Other Half Lives. This provides them with outstanding historical context of the conditions of immigrant groups and children in the tenements.

Lastly after students learn about the Immigration Acts of 1917, 1921, and 1924, have students write a personalized modern day Immigration policy to the current President. A sample template letter is included.

I also supplement a tour of The Tenement Museum in New York City. This will most certainly prepare any level of student for your history classes.

I have the Keynote presentation available I use as part of this unit for your use as it is compatible to the graphs found in the student packet.
