Crossing the Line

Carole Ambroziak Barnes, Doolen Middle School

In this lesson students will locate the southern border, listen to a story about crossing the border, discuss the journey brainstorming push/pull factors that might motivate a person to make such a journey, read recent newspaper articles and synthesize what they have learned in a journal entry. This lesson lasts about 2-3 class periods. Email our Outreach Coordinator Clea Conlin at for the materials.
