Grandfather's Journey
Grandfather's Journey - Allen Say

Grandfather's Journey is a book about a young boy who retells his grandfather's journey coming from Japan to America. The text illustrates all of the obstacles and hardships his grandfather had to overcome while inhabiting a new country. This text can be used in a 3-5th grade classroom during a lesson regarding immigration and migration. This book could lead to an activity where the students get to research their family's origin and where their great great grandparents immigrated from.

Coming to America: The Story of Immigration
Coming to America : The Story of Immigration - Betsy Maestro,Suzanne Ryan

Coming to America: The Story of Immigration is a wonderful book to help students learn about immigration. The text tells the story of various immigrant groups coming to America and the challenges that they faced. The text also celebrates their cultural contributions to our country. As an extension activity, students could be put in small groups where each group researches one of the cultural groups mentioned in the text in depth and then presents their findings to the class.

At Ellis Island
At Ellis Island: A History in Many Voices - Louise Peacock

At Ellis Island is a collection of stories from different people and different point of views about their own experiences through Ellis Island. The stories are from people such as, a young girl traveling with her great, great grandmother, an Armenian girl, and then voices of real immigrants. This would be a great book to read when studying immigration. After reading this book, the teacher could have students look up articles and research others that have immigrated to the U.S.

Coming to America: The Story of Immigration
Coming to America : The Story of Immigration - Betsy Maestro,Suzanne Ryan

This book tells about the story of immigration and how many people came to America to live a better life. It describes the first time the government opened Ellis Island and the young girl that was the first person to come through that port, Annie Moore. The book also mentions the United States as a melting pot because of the many different kinds of people that now live here. 

This would be a great book to introduce the term immigration and then the teacher could have the students learn about their own family history. This could become a project where the students present their findings to the class. This would allow the students in the class to see the history behind everyone else in the class and try to understand each other a little more.
