This webquest allows students to learn about Irish immigration to America. The Irish Immigration to America Webquest uses an engaging website that allows students to explore the positive and negative experiences that Irish immigrants had within the United States.
The webquest contains 40 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about the following topics:
• Colonial Immigration
• Irish-Catholic Immigration
• Potato Famine
• Slums and Mistreatment of Irish immigrants
• Discrimination and Riots
• Racial Tensions/Civil War
• Politics and Opportunity
An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest takes most students one class period to complete depending on the age of your students. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 5-12
