Angel Island Experience

In our reading text this week students follow the journey of a young Chinese boy as he is detained at Angel Island awaiting to join his father in the United States. This text is historical fiction and a great opportunity to talk as a family about where your ancestors came from.

For more information and stories about real people that came to the United States through Angel Island, check out the website "Angel Island: Immigrant Journeys of Chinese-Americans."
