Social Studies - 4th Grade
Standard 2 Objective 1
2 class periods of 45 minutes each
Students learn about the experience of being an immigrant, which requires the traveler to plan for the journey, to pack, and to make difficult decisions. People from many cultures have created trunks or others containers to hold their belongings while they travel. The size of the carrying device limits the number of personal possessions, mementos, and material goods brought from home to begin a new life.
Students will understand what immigration is, and why people immigrated to the United States and to Utah.
Ask the students if any of them have moved? Why did they move? What did they bring with them? Did they have to leave any family behind when they moved?
