Instructional Ideas

  • Divide class members into ten groups, assign each group a "stop" to read, then have them share their newfound knowledge with their peers 
  • Direct early finishers to browse the three additional tabs: meeting young immigrants, data, and a virtual tour of the island
  • Challenge pupils to take notes including questions they can later research to extend the learning process 
Classroom Considerations

  • Preview interviews to confirm appropriateness
  • Have headphones available to keep the volume down in the classroom when videos and audio play 
Pros

  • Audio comes from actual steamship passengers sharing their experience 
  • Photos are taken from the time steamships made their way to Ellis Island 
Cons

  • None
