Immigration Becomes Real

ImmigrantFourth graders have been learning about their family history as they study about immigration. To help them understand even more about why immigrants from all over the world flocked to America by the millions, Cherrie Beam Clark, a storyteller with the Nebraska Humanities Council, visited the students portraying an Irish immigrant. In honor of her grandparents who immigrated to America in the early 1900's Clark peeled potatoes with a knife, and told stories about the potato famine and how life on the Nebraska prairie was one of hardship and determination. Soon the fourth graders will portray one of their ancestors as they re-enact the coming to America through Ellis Island and discover the "Isle of Tears" as their class becomes the "Great Hall" of yesterday.
