Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Sixth graders brainstorm the reasons why people would want to leave their homeland to live in the United States. In groups, they research the political representation of the Board in New Haven, Connecticut. They also write a paper on how politics can influence population growth by examining the limits placed on Chinese who wanted to emigrate to the US. To end the lesson, they interview a member of the Board about minorities.
