Tool #23: Tenement Museum

Type:  Interactive simulation of immigration in the early 1900s

Teacher:  Elementary and middle (Social Studies, Language Arts)

Student Use:  Increase understanding of early 1900 America

The Tenement Museum interactive is SO cool.  It has educational video and audio.  Students choose their own immigration adventure.  They decide their home country, what to pack, etc.  Students can print the passport they create.   (I would have had so much fun with this as a youngster!)
