People immigrate to other countries for many reasons. Some may immigrate for more opportunities and better education, and some may immigrate to be with family or leave a place where life has become bad and oppressive. For this activity, students will create a spider map that illustrates three reasons why people immigrate. This is a perfect introductory activity for an immigration unit, and can also be used as a review at the end!
