Coming to America is great for kids and adults of all ages. While reading I learned a few things I did not know and it is always great to learn at any age. This book uses the power of illustrations to really drive home the message and make it engaging for children. America is a melting pot of so many people and cultures and that is what makes it special. It is important for students to understand that almost everyone on this land comes from a brave line of immigrants that had the courage to start a new life and leave everything they knew in order to give future generations a better life. It also, teaches students that everyone did not come to America by choice but persevered never the less. A great activity is to ask students to an object that is important to them to show the class. Students will tell their fellow classmates what the object means to them and the history behind it. They will describe how they would feel if they had to leave it behind. This activity will help students understand that most immigrants left everything they loved and cherished to come to America. Incorporating this book into my lesson will help me integrate social students and reading.
This adventurous book is a great book to tell about the excitement of coming to America from various countries. Coming to America expressed how the immigrants felt coming to America through words and through illustrations. This book is a great read for upper elementary grades. It is full of new vocabulary and social study lessons. This book even talks about a young lady who came to America to meet her parents with her two younger brothers after growing up without them.
