We had a blast learning about immigration! We started the unit by reading the book “This is Me” by Jamie Lee Curtis. The students got to design their own suitcase and drew and cut out just what they would need for their journey! We learned about several different countries and why the immigrants had to leave their country. At the end of the unit, the kiddos wrote a letter from the perspective that they were an immigrant leaving their family, and they had to discuss their journey, where they left, and what it was like arriving at Ellis Island! They LOVED this unit!
