Immigrating to America

Students investigate American immigration. In this immigration lesson, students locate the countries on the map where the immigrants traveled from and study a timeline of the three major waves of immigration. As an extension, students study images of Ellis Island and the immigration period on the web and discuss the immigrant experience.
