Yesterday my grade went to Ellis Island for a school trip. Earlier in the year we studied immigration and Ellis Island but we didn’t get a chance to go untill yesterday. For our immigration project everyone got a country and they made up a character that would be travaling on steerage to America, they also had to pass through Ellis Island.
I’ve been to Ellis island before in second grade. I went with my grade in my old school. In second grade we did it a little bit differently, we studied our family and our ancestors. We picked one of our family members to study (they had to have immigrated to America) and we also did research on the country they were from.
I had fun on the trip but I think that it was a little more fun went I went in second grade because I had already seen and did most of the things. Overall I think that going to Ellis Island was fun and I learned a lot.
