We discuss migration this week. It is likely that your family has migrated at some point in the past. Do some family ancestry research and tell your classmates if your family moved from one country to another in your family’s history. If you are unsure of your family’s background, choose a historic migration wave to the United States. Describe some of the likely push or pull factors that brought families from that location to the United States.
- What are the modern push and pull factors bringing in people here?
- Are they the same as your family’s or the historical migrations wave’s reasons or are they different?
You might find the Population Reference Bureau site helpful as it discusses with the history of immigration in the United States.
