Students at UPCE Learn about Famous Immigrants

Ms. Quigley's fourth grade class recently finished a social studies unit on American government, citizenship, and immigration.  As a final project, students dressed up as famous immigrants of the United States and "introduced themselves" to the class with an oral presentation. Through these projects, students were able to discuss and celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of the American immigrant community.  Finally, at the end of each presentation, students used a rubric to give feedback to each other on their performance.
