Scholastic. Immigration: Stories of Yesterday and Today

Immigration: Stories of Yesterday and Today shares with students the many reasons people come to America and how they’ve helped create our rich and diverse country. Through several learning activities (mostly for grades 3–8) at this site including oral histories of recent and historic immigrants, an Ellis Island history lesson, data analysis, research skills, and several graphing activities, students get a comprehensive look at immigration. Take a tour of Ellis Island, explore an interactive immigration timeline, and meet young immigrants in this online activity!
