Your Turn page 263-266
We can gain a deeper understanding of our family's past and the past of others by reading documents from the lives of our ancestors. This week the students will learn about how those who were oppressed during the turn of the 19th century maintained a positive outlook as well as how they chose to document their experiences. The focus for this week's heritage project will allow students to also understand an ancestor's country of origin. We will also discuss immigration and how lives were changed so drastically during the immigration process.
