Ellis Island Day 2006
Students Share Their Experiences

Posted October 7, 2006

At Ellis Island Day, the culminating event of our immigration unit, 5th grade students participated in a simulation during which they pretended to be immigrants coming to America from a foreign country.  In preparation for the event, each student chose a country and immigrant name, created a passport, and even printed off pictures of their homeland's currency. 

In this broadcast, a few students share their experiences during Ellis Island Day.  Please be patient as this broadcast is a bit longer than usual due to the many activities associated with the event.  While you're listening, try and catch the immigrant names used by the students listed below.

Student order of appearance:

  • Shelby
  • Jeremiah
  • Samantha
  • Stephanie
  • Austin
  • Gabriella
