Immigrating to Illinois

Tenth graders research information from the internet in order to create a spread sheet. They consult the historical records of the U.S. census to collect population information for the following years; 1850, 1870, 1890, and 1940. They examine the total population of the state, the number of foreign born people in the state, and the number of native born people in the state. They compare percentages of foreign born people to determine which years had the highest immigration rates.
