This unit includes lesson ideas and activities in an immigration study. In the study of immigrants, students create suitcases, "pack" their bags, write a personal account story of an immigrant, dress up like and immigrant, and participate in an Ellis Island Simulation (Coming to America celebration).
Unit includes directions for the Coming to America celebration, rubric for suitcase, rubric for immigrant writing, photos of the celebration in my classroom, family history form, parent letters, volunteer directions for celebration, etc.
Any questions, send me a message. I hope you are able to use this unit as your students study immigrants.
