The website is really informative as you can find statistics on U.S immigration, do a lesson about Ellis Island and there is information on the lives of the new immigrants. They also do a page/ worksheet about the Statue of Liberty so students can learn the history behind the Statue and what meaning it held to many immigrants during that time. I came across this work sheet called ‘decorated bowls’ I thought this was interesting because it shows us that they want students to create a ‘salad’ bowl that represents all of the different cultures/ immigrants in America. The website also encourages the students recreate the immigration process at Ellis Island with some students acting as examiners and others pretending to be immigrants.
The only bad side about this website is that you have to sign up and pay to gain access to the worksheets and activities so I wasn’t able to have complete access to everything but nevertheless. This website is useful to any teacher who wanted to incorporate U.S immigration into the class room.
