In the Classroom: The Arrival Box

As I mentioned in another post I used The Ellis Island Collection (a collection of beautiful reproductions of documents and artifacts related to Ellis Island) as a resource while reading The Arrival. Now we are using it as a model as we make our very own box of artifacts.

Every day we get new ideas about what we want to put into the box.

Already the kids have made a ship manifest, written letters, created a steamship ticket, food, birds, identity cards, family photographs, a diary, postcards and more is on the way.

Most exciting of all, in a couple of weeks we will be giving this box to Shaun Tan in person.
