Fifth Grade Humanities Ellis Island Reenactment
Prior to the reenactment, students studied artifacts, photographs and documents showing the immigrant experience of traveling through Ellis Island during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Included in this reenactment was a teacher-created written immigration test, a confirmation of physical fitness, and the ability to explain their purpose for coming to America, similar to what immigrants would have undergone.
