Ellis Island

3rd Grade students prepare to enter Ellis Island Simulation

Meadowbrook Third Graders "visited" Ellis Island on Friday March 6th.

Meadowbrook Third Graders "visited" Ellis Island on Friday March 6th.  Prior to their journey, students learned about Immigration and studied their family history.  They were placed into families and got to experience life as an immigrant coming through Ellis Island.  Many experienced fear of the unknown in the New World, family separation and disease, just like immigrants of the late 1800's.  Thank you to all those who volunteered to make this experience memorable.
