Where Do Our Families Come From?

After a grand conversation about immigration to the United States, scholars interview a family member to learn about their journey to America. They then take their new-found knowledge and apply their findings to tracking their family members' movement on a personal and classroom map. Finally, they construct a bar graph to display the lesson's data.
