Four Immigrant Groups: Their Lives and Music

Fourth graders examine the experiences of four immigrant groups. In groups, they brainstorm a list of misconceptions of those groups and discuss if they are still present today. Using maps, they locate the countries of Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Cuba and research why they left their home country. To end the lesson, they compare and contrast the music of the four countries.
