Did you know that 50% of all Americans can trace a relative who traveled through Ellis Island? Relive these journeys with your class and then provide sentence strategy templates for them to use to compose their own informative immigration story. Although the examples cited in the instructional activity are for Ellis Island, the sentence strategy templates can be adapted for any current event article from Time for Kids (timeforkids.com).
