Learning About Ellis Island and Immigration
Homework: October 27-28: Watch The Virtual Field Trip to Ellis Island
Visit the page on the Scholastic website that has the Virtual Field Trip to Ellis Island. This was recorded at Ellis Island (where we'll be going on Wednesday!) and will teach you more about what you will see. In the video, Ellis Island Park Rangers (who are major Ellis Island EXPERTS!) answer lots of questions about what happened at Ellis Island. Watch the half-hour long virtual tour and be prepared to discuss what you learned with your classmates.
Ellis Island Webquest Interactive Tour
Go on a virtual tour of all of the parts of Ellis Island. Explore each stop on the immigrants' journey through Ellis Island. Use the information you learn at each "stop" on the tour to answer the questions in your research packet.
