Immigration Vocabulary Word Sort is a great way for students to review information about Ellis Island, Angel Island, Prejudice, Reasons for Coming to America, and Life in the USA. By sorting these terms and characteristics into categories, students can review the information in a new and meaningful way. This activity aligns with the Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies in the 5th grade. It is great to use during your Immigration or Ellis Island unit, or as a review for high-stakes testing (Milestones). This activity may work well for other states as well.
Included in this sort is:
-Student sheet with 5 categories and 14 clues.
-Large version of headings and cards for use on chart paper
-Teacher tips page with links to 3 websites for students to research the information for the sort
