In this cross-curricular Social Studies and English Language Arts unit, immigrant and refugee students will explore maps of their homelands from the AGSL Digital Collections. Students can use pre-selected maps or search for maps in the collections. Students will perform research using online databases and/or other primary sources to learn how and why their homeland's names and borders have changed over time. During this unit, students will also learn new academic vocabulary while gaining insight into how people in power have changed our world. https://sites.google.com/milwaukee.k12.wi.us/whoiamwhereimfrom/home https://sites.google.com/milwaukee.k12.wi.us/maps/home https://sites.google.com/milwaukee.k12.wi.us/student-activities/home
