Hurry up, these sacks won't move themselves
I wish I had more food to bring to my family!
The Great Potato Famine started 1845 and ended in 1850 in Ireland. A disease called Phytophthora infestans also known as P. infestans infected the potato plant, causing many people diseases and death. This kind of virus was transported from America and by wind.
Challenges and Perspectives
You are poor, so that means you are not allowed to live in Boston.
Rotten Potatoes made people feel sick and many of the Irish population vomited. Some people even died from eating too many rotten potatoes.
Great Britain had a lot of food at that time, so many Irish migrated to Britain. There was an advantage to live, but many British locals did not give the Irish a lot of food and made them work hard. Some Irish stole and hoped to be put in jail where there was food.

British locals burned the Irish houses and made them live in an orphanage full of disease. People of Ireland did not want to waste their life working and not getting enough food, so they decided to migrate to America. It was quite a challenging experience for them to fit in. Some Irish died onboard. Americans accepted some Irish people and they didn't accept others.
You are richer than her, so that means you can live in New York.
I had so many questions like How did this virus affect the potato plant? How did that migration develop diversity? Were the Americans nice to the Irish people? Unfortunately, I could not find the answers to the questions.

I have used these websites to make my presentation, but I used the last one more, which is an oversimplified video that teaches kids about the potato famine.
