Ellis Island School Trip



Today, the whole fifth grade went to Ellis Island.I thought it was really great because we got to see the place where  more than 12 million Immigrants from all over the world traveled to From 1892 to 1954.Ellis Island is located In New York Harbor ,The drive to Ellis Island from Scarsdale Westchester  took about an hour and a half.When we got to Ellis Island we got to The first floor with our group .The first floor Had things like, trunks that the immigrants used a long time ago and ,A globe that shows where the Immigrants traveled. After that, We went to the second floor. the second floor was Called The Great Hall,It is called the Great Hall because it is very big  and Grand. I thought it was very cool to be able to go to the Great Hall because we got to see where the people who came before us went to. After that, we watched a movie about people interviewing immigrants. I thought it was interesting because a lot of the immigrants said that they would rather die than go back to their country , this shows that they really didn’t want to go back to their country.This is Why I thought that Ellis Island was really  great. overall I thought it was a great trip,If I have the chance to go there again I would want to go back!
