Exploring Pilgrims At New Horizons

New Horizons Elementary School second graders learned that most citizens of the United States are “pilgrims” who emigrated from other countries. Students researched the country of their origin and traveled through “Ellis Island” to understand what many of their relatives experienced. Dual Language students, after reading Molly’s Pilgrim by Barbara Cohen, created clothespin dolls dressed as early Americans, Indians and various countries of their ancestors. Shown here are second grade Dual Language students with their teacher, Barbara Garcia.
