In this lesson students will view Newspaper articles, photos, cartoons, and maps displayed at each gallery station bring the period of around 1900 alive for each of 6 immigrant groups that came to the U.S. By using primary and secondary sources, students will be able to see and experience immigration and the immigrant experience and relate it to their own lives. Using a graphic organizer allows students to analyze what they are looking at and be able to sort out important information as well as helping with content comprehension.
