Storyboard Text

  • I am Clara
  • Looking at the Boat
  • Meet Amelia
  • My name is Clara.
  • Land Ho!
  • I am going to America on first-class.
  • Going with Steerage
  • When everyone is sleeping, I sneak a look into steerage. I am curious. There is a girl that I recognize - she lived in my town and her name is Amelia. We spend the night getting to know each other and I sneak her food.
  • After
  • Finally, I see land. This is where I will be leaving with the other first and second-class passengers. I say good bye to Amelia and hurry over toward the dock. I tear my dress on a slab of wood. Then I slip and fall in the mud. I look like a steerage passenger! I continue to run, but I keep losing my balance! Then I feel the boat beginning to move away from the dock. I am trapped!
  • I leave the boat with other steerage passengers. What am I to do? Then I slip again, falling heavily on my left leg. I hear a crack. Then a bolt of pain shoots through my leg. No!
  • I am stuffed into Amelia's suitcase so I can avoid the testing at Ellis Island. After Amelia passes the test, I get out of the suitcase, and find my family. I say good-bye to Amelia and wish her luck.  THE END
