Third grade students at Imagine School at Town Center learned about Ellis Island on March 3, taking part in a simulated Ellis Island processing activity.
The students gathered their passports and belongings to head to "America," while parent volunteers checked students’ passports and facilitated five rotations. The students then held a “Coming to America" party.
”This meaningful learning experience is something that students always remember and brings our reading unit to life," third grade teacher Stephanie Martin said. "Students are able to empathize with the characters in the books that we read by recognizing the challenges that immigrants endured. It’s by far one of the most educational and fun days that we experience in third grade!”
