Assignment for Today
Week of April 18-21
Do you know what the word immigrant means? If not, here is the definition:
a person who comes to live permanently in a foreign country
Our country is built on immigrants, and there are millions of records showing this on Ancestry.com. Today you are going to see some lists of immigrants that came on boats into the port of New Orleans. I want you to get a sheet of paper and write down the countries that you notice that the immigrants come from. I also want you to write down the ships that they come on. Then you can actually go and look at pictures of the ships that they came one. Here is a video that explains how to do all of this. Please write your name on the paper that has the list of countries and ships. You can place that paper on table 7 when you are finished with it.
Check out books if you can. If you don't know if you can check out books, login to your Destiny account.
If you still have time remaining, you can look around on Ancestry or read.
There is an eBook in Ebsco eBooks called Immigration Stories. It is on a 3.3 reading level and worth half a point. I think it would be a great idea to read it and take a quiz on it when you have time. You might have time today.
Week of April 10-14th, 2017

Write your answers on a sheet of paper in the "scratch paper" section. Put your name on the paper. Make sure you are writing on the side of the paper that does not have anything printed on it.

Make sure head phones and hung up and all paper scraps are thrown away.
