Virtual Field Trip to Ellis Island

I just got an email from Scholastic telling me that they are holding a LIVE virtual field trip to Ellis Island
on Thursday, March 29 from 1:00-1:35 pm ET. My class is definitely participating and I hope you can too!

 If you can't wait until then or want more information, check out their lesson plans or activities for kids.

You can also take their virtual picture tour.

Imagine yourself as an immigrant. My first two classes immigrated from South America. Many of my current students and their parents came to the US from Asia.  I have encouraged them to enter the "Dear Homeland" Letter Writing contest for a chance to win a trip to Ellis Island and to share their experiences.


  1. Thanks for sharing! Sadly, we are on spring break at the time of the virtual field trip, but I think we may use some of the other resources. Thanks. so much.
