Ellis Island and Immigration for Kids: A History with 21 Activities (For Kids series) By Jean Daigneau Cover Image


Ellis Island and Immigration for Kids explores all angles of immigration and its history in the United States.
Readers will learn about the establishment of Ellis Island and its forerunner, Castle Garden, as well as the western immigration station, Angel Island. Along with activities to further enrich kids’ knowledge of immigration, this book gives its readers a thorough understanding of its impact on the United States from the earliest arrivals to today.
Activities include instructions on writing a letter home after a journey in steerage to graphing and comparing immigrant populations since the first US census in 1790. This book will help kids gain an appreciation of immigration’s impact on the United States, as well as challenge them to reflect on their own feelings about this important issue.

Readers will broaden their understanding of issues that center on immigration with cross-curriculum activities, such as poetry and letter writing, graphing, and other math analyses.
