Provide students with the information from Immigration, 1899-1924 and ask students to use the table to answer the questions on the Immigration Math work sheet. Then ask each student to choose several countries from the table and use the information to create a bar graph showing the number of immigrants per country who arrived in the United States between 1899 and 1924.
Evaluate students on the accuracy of the information in their graphs and their answers to the questions on the Immigration Math work sheet. The answers to the Immigration Math work sheet are: 1. Italy; 2. Pacific Islands; 3. 135,029; 4. Poland; 5. 60,309; 6. 6,714; 7. Italy; 8. 88 percent; 9. Russia (35 percent); 10. The Chinese Exclusion Act made immigration difficult.
