The following activity kit provides students with the opportunity to contextualize immigration patterns and refugee crises throughout history. It is designed to highlight a popular subject in modern political discourse, both through a historical overview of American immigration and research of students’ own personal histories. Through research databases such as Ancestry.com, students will trace their own family background and find connections to the broader history of immigration.
