On September 27, 5th graders in Mrs Haygood's class at Lauderdale County High School participated in an Ellis Island Simulation, conducted by 11th graders in Mrs. Reding's US History class. The event was the culmination of many weeks of study for both the 5th and 11th grade history classes. Students learned about the immigrant experience and participated in a reenactment of being processed thru Ellis Island. Even Lady Liberty made an appearance! It was an exciting day for all involved.
