Today the fifth grade went to Ellis Island and it was the best thing ever! Ellis Island is The Origin of the Island. From 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered the United States through the portal of Ellis Island, a small island in New York Harbor. Ellis Island is located in the upper bay just off the New Jersey coast, within the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. First we went on a coach bus. Which was longer than i expected. Then we got of and went to the ferry and that ride was shorter than i expected .Now to talk about how it was. So first we went and right when we stepped in it was amazing. There was a lot of cool stuff. First we went upstairs and we went to the great hall where a tour guy was talking about stuff. Then next we went to go look around. After that we watched a movie and that movie was worse than expected. After that we ate lunch took pictures when back inside went upstairs and we got to see the dorm where all the immigrants slept. Then the most Exciting part of the strip and then we went to go look closer to see Statue of Liberty close. That took 45 min. Then we went back on the couch bus and watched a movie. That was one of the best day ever.
