Highlights: Immigration Day at Hopkins School

As a way of teaching students about the process of immigrating to America in the late 1800s and early 1900s, Hopkins School held its eighth annual Immigration Day on March 22nd. The day, a culmination of a several week unit on immigration, gives students an opportunity to learn about US immigration not just through a textbook, but interactively. To prepare themselves for this experience, the students are assigned an identity based off of an actual person who immigrated to America and then learn about the tough realities that their characters faced during their journey to become American citizens. Then on Immigration Day, dressed as their assigned characters, the students are processed at various stations.

Then, they were transported to the Great Hall for medical examinations. However, not everyone was given a clean bill of health. Once the immigrants were cleared, they took an oath of loyalty to their adopted country.

As a way of highlighting all of the cultures that America comprises of, some of the students celebrated their heritages. Watch the HCAM News video for highlights.
