The 5th graders researched the lives of immigrants from the early 20th Century, and then dressed up as immigrants to see if they could make it through Ellis Island to become new Americans. See a Photo Gallery of them navigating “Ellis Island” with their parents in the role of immigration authorities. They all became citizens — a better result than some of the real immigrants faced back then!
