The first hand accounts of stories of immigration to Canada give the student a taste of the struggles people in other countries have and foster an appreciation for Canada. The stories are short, two-page reads which makes them suitable for Grade 5 lessons on immigration. Discussion questions and activities after EACH story challenge students to think about the immigrant experience and their own response.This book is a great tool for discussing immigration and primary sources of material.
