Kids can take a virtual tour of Ellis Island in New York where 12 million immigrants came to the United States between 1892 and 1954. This immersive experience is an opportunity to hear first-hand immigration stories.
In addition, the tour features historical photographs and films as well as interesting museum captions. Teachers can use the Scholastic teacher’s activity guide for history and social studies lessons.
Students can use the website to explore immigration data and meet young immigrants who have recently arrived. Read more about the virtual visit and Ellis Island here.
