Coming to America

Coming to America

Your students arrive in America in 1901 with nothing but a steamer trunk and their dreams, and discover how to live in a new country without losing their own cultures. As we immigrate, we will integrate, bringing social studies and ELA to life through poetry and drama, and providing your students with a deep understanding of the process of becoming an American.

One- and two-day Coming to America workshops are also available.
