In this lesson, students will use a variety of skills in order to

understand the immigrant experience for those arriving at Ellis Island

at the turn of the 19th century. Students will watch a video of a firsthand

account of an immigrant's voyage to Ellis Island, understand the

push/pull factors for the immigrant, and view images in 3D/AR. By the

end of this lesson, students will understand why people left their

country and what they endured in order to achieve their dream of

living in America.
