As part of a unit on immigration, students create little books about Ellis Island.
Assembly Directions for the Layered Book
Piece 1: Glue the text of page 1 to the bottom of the largest piece of ocean. Turn the piece over and glue the text for page 2 at the bottom.
Piece 2: Glue the Statue of Liberty to a smaller piece of ocean. Turn the piece over and glue the text for page 4 at the bottom.
Piece 3: Attach the other small piece of ocean to the light blue piece of construction paper (sky), lining up the bottoms and the side edges. Place the glue for this ocean piece on the sides, not the top. Slide the skyline behind the top edge of the ocean and glue it in place. Place Ellis Island in the ocean, toward the bottom of page 5.
