Contextualize social studies and enhance literacy as students role-play European immigrants setting sail for America in 1900.
Nail Common Core standards as students examine primary sources to identify reasons people left their homes in Europe and explore the conditions of life on a steamship.
Involve students in hands-on social studies activities that deepen critical-thinking skills as students read descriptions and create postcards, passports, and three-dimensional models. Students identify with the fear of being detained or deported during the immigration process in Ellis Island in the unit’s critical incident, which is designed to strengthen speaking and listening skills.
