IMMIGRATION IN FOURTH GRADE
Fourth Grade reading groups spend much of the winter integrating Social Studies units with their Literature. Over the past month, the students have been learning about the immigration process and reading stories and letters about people who immigrated to America from different countries around the world. The girls set up their very own TSA Customs Checkpoint where new arrivals to America had to go through the needed steps to get approval to enter the country. Once in America, immigrants to our country needed to prepare for naturalization. The girls learned about this about this as they read Maggie Rugg Herold's
The Very Important Day. This story shares the experiences of people preparing to become a citizen. One highlight of this unit is when our own
Limudei Kodesh Coordinator,
Mrs. Liora Rosen, shared her personal journey to becoming a US Citizen.
