Social Studies - European Immigration
We are  exploring the lives of various immigrants that traveled from Europe to America to better their lives.
The students picked new names and families from a country in Europe.
They chose a port and steamer that will take them to America.
In school we are learning about the various reasons for immigrating to America, the hardships that the people endured, the life in steerage, seeing the Statue of Liberty for the first time, and the stations at Ellis Island.
We will have our culminating event in the LSS Cafe on February 22nd from 9:00-11:00 am where the students will dress up and pretend that they are actually being processed through Ellis Island.

Parent volunteers are welcome to this most memorable activity. We are looking for volunteers for inspectors, officials, doctors, and snack bar workers.

If you can't make the actual event to volunteer, we would greatly appreciate a donation of a food item such as: a gallon of whole milk, a jar of strawberry jam, a block of cheese, a gallon of water, or a bunch of bananas or a bag of oranges. Many thanks!

Our class will arrive at Ellis Island at approximately 10:00 am!
If you are volunteering and would like to see how each station is run, please come earlier as other classes work their way through the stations!
