Welcome to Ellis Island!

The 4-5 students transitioned through checkpoints, sailed to America, and arrived at Ellis Island for processing as they emigrated to the US. This massive simulation involved students acting the part of ancestors or even made up characters who actually made this journey. Students had to pass health, intelligence, legal, and many other screenings on their way to America. Students complete this simulation by writing a reflection that captures this unique experience. Thanks to all parents who played important roles today!
