An Interactive Timeline of Immigration to the U.S.

May 7, 2012

Scholastic recently released a fantastic new interactive timeline of immigration to the United States. The timeline is divided into five eras; A New Land, Expanding America, The American Dream, A Place of Refuge, and Building a Modern America. Within each era there are multiple sub-sections that students can explore. In each sub-section students will find captioned images and videos that explain the significance of each era in immigration. I’ve included one video from the timeline below.

Applications for Education
Immigration: Stories of Yesterday and Today looks like a great resource for elementary and middle school students. You might want to have students use the timeline in conjunction with the immigration data that Scholastic has published. Ask students if they can make correlations between the stories of immigration and the fluctuations in immigration statistics.
