Our third graders are ready to dive into an in-depth study of Chicago's ethnic neighborhoods, but first they need to learn what immigration is and how it contributed to the development of our fine city. We want to visit the historic Jane Addams Hull House. There, we will see a slide show depicting the work done by the settlement house workers to assist immigrants making a new life in Chicago. We will then tour Hull House and its museum and study historical maps illustrating the ethnic make-up of the neighborhood surrounding Hull House as it changed over time as waves of immigrants from many diffrent cultures settled there. If there is anything I have learned in my 5 years teaching third grade, it is that kids learn better by doing, seeing and touching for themselves. This trip provides a great opportunity to let kids see historic Chicago with their own eyes and to touch pieces of history. This trip is the springboard for three other trips through Chicago's ethnic neighborhoods which will help our students understand some of the diversity that makes up our city. We hope they will learn not only what immigration is and why people choose to make a new life in a new country, but also to repsect other cultures and to appreciate the benefits of difference and diversity. Our students are all African American and live primarily on the south side of Chicago. This opportunity will allow 52 third graders to see a authentic artifacts and photographs that they might not ever see on their own, that will help them understand the history of the city they live in. Please help us take them through this experience that will form the basis of the unit the follows by funding our bus (the Hull House visit is FREE)!
