Welcome Immigrants!

Students research immigration to find out why people from Europe, Asia, and elsewhere left their homelands during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Then they determine what living conditions were like when immigrants first settled in the United States or elsewhere during that period. Students also design and create a traditional immigrant marketplace with figures in authentic clothing and signs that represent the language and culture.

I found this website through a colleague and just absolutely love it so far. There is an unbelievable wealth of information here at my fingertips. While planning lessons for the week, in just a few minutes I discovered the most creative and inspiring lessons that would have taken me months to plan by myself. Not only are they inspirational, but they also aid what I am already doing in my classroom while at the same time, provide opportunities for differentiated instruction. It's a breath of fresh air to get other ideas from other teachers to help me stay away from boring lesson ruts Lesson Planet helps me to perform my job to the best of my abilities. Thank you to all who contribute to this site. It is truly wonderful.
