Immigration is an issue that is top of mind right now in the U.S., but it's not a new issue. The United States of America is a nation of immigrants and unless you are Native American, you probably have immigrant roots. Exciting!
Our students learn about immigration throughout their lessons. For example, when they are introduced to events such as the California Gold Rush (which drew immigrants from Asia and Europe), or when they learn about Ellis Island and the millions of immigrants who came to our country from all over the world. Lessons touch on reasons why people emigrate (war, famine, etc.) and the rights and responsibilities of America's citizens.
Immigration has always been a part of our country's history and it's always been a controversial topic.
Here are some books that will assist you in creating conversation starters with your kiddos. I suggest reading them together and then asking "How is your life similar or different to the child in this book?"
