An Immigration Celebration

The 8th grade explored the immigration experience at Ellis Island and had the opportunity to research how his or her family arrived in America. Each student created a t-shirt mural that captured his or her culture and family’s journey. The students celebrated their unique identities by showing off the t-shirts and sharing cultural food, clothing, and personal items in class.
