Today I had a chance to work with Dara Nalven and her fourth graders in Language Arts on a cross curriculum project. The students had read a story about Angel Island and the obstacles immigrants faced. I shared information about Ellis Island (as part of my role as an Ellis Island Ambassador) and together we created voicethreads sharing their cultural heritage. This was a closure activity and enabled all students to share their traditions. Please view their voicethreads and comment.
