Scholastic just announced a webcast (video) tour of Ellis Island on March 29th that is perfect for homeschool.
This is a GREAT opportunity to help your children understand how America became the melting pot of the world, where all the immigrants came from, and why.
I took my son to Ellis Island last year. I was very impressed with the interactive displays and how vividly they got across the role this important location played in American history. The tour is co-sponsored by the National Park Service.
