Social StudiesTo round out our World Geography study, students were interviewing each other as "immigrants" to the U.S. Some immigrants were pushed out of their countries for very challenging situations like war or poverty. Others were pulled to the U.S. with hopes of better opportunities. Students had to bring in "artifacts" from their homeland to help tell their stories. It was surprising to discover life did not always get easier or better for all immigrants.
On Monday, we will be learning about the Lutheran Saxon immigrants in preparation for our field trip on Wednesday.
