Storyboard Text

  • Stop #1, The Passage.This is the stop where we travel by foot, train, or horse back for several days. Then, we finally get on the ship, most of us ride steerage. This stop was important because we had to have some way to get to Ellis Island didn't we?
  • Stop #2, The Arrival. This is the stop where health officers like me would board the ship and check for disease symptoms. This stop was important because the doctors would need to see if something was wrong so they could send them home, or to the hospital
  • Stop #4, The Stairs to the Registry Room. This is the stop where me and my Daddy have to wait on the stairs and there are these doctors staring at us.This stop is important because the doctors have to check us for major health problems..
  • Stop #5, The Registry Room. This was the stop that we waited at to get our legal and medical examinations, it was very big and loud. It was important because they needed a place for us to wait while they were doing the examinations.
  • Stop #6, The Medical Exams. This stop is the place that immigrants were given a 6 second physical. The doctors checked for any contagious diseases or mental illness. This was extremely important because they didn't want outbreaks of diseases coming into America.
  • Stop #7, The legal inspection. This was the stop where immigrants were given important questions to answer before they could come through. This was important because they didn't want to let criminals into America.
