Product Description

With this activity, students analyze the experiences of five different immigration groups that settled in the United States - Mexicans, Italians, Russian Jews, the Chinese, and Scandinavians (the Swedish and Norwegians). They can do so as stations or as part of a gallery walk. Each of the stations has a variety of primary sources with a heavy focus on photographs to tell the story of each group. Students also document the settlement locations of each of the groups by analyzing a settlement map. (It is not necessary for students to complete all of the stations, so you could cut one if needed.)

For an exit ticket, students pick the two groups who showed the most contrast, and write a paragraph discussing those two groups and utilizing evidence from the graphic organizer.
