FAMILY JOURNEYS!

WHEN: Tuesday, July 21, from 11:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. EDT 

WHERE: via Zoom

Through an examination of personal artifacts, photographs, and documents from the Museum’s collection and others, students will explore the Chinese American experience through the lens of Kenneth, a young Chinese boy who emigrated to the United States via Angel Island. Students will consider what the journey was like, learn about the specific challenges Chinese immigrants faced, investigate the conditions on Angel Island, and reflect on immigration laws like the Chinese Exclusion Act. Interactive activities coupled with close examination of artifacts will encourage students to make connections between past and present experiences of immigrants to the U.S., and even their own.

Recommended for grades 3-5 but all are welcome!

WHEN: Tuesday, July 21, from 11:00 A.M. - 12:00 P.M. EDT
