Activity Overview

Ellis Island was the largest immigration station in the United States for over 30 years during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Millions of people came through in search of a better life. Now a museum, the island is rich in history and importance. In this activity, students will create a poster that includes important facts and information about Ellis Island. They can create a strictly factual poster or do a travel-style poster that advertises Ellis Island, it's history, and why it should be visited.

You can find more travel poster templates to add to the assignment if you want students to be able to choose from a variety.
