Finding Family Treasure

$10.99

“Who are we?” Ms. Johansson asks her class of fifth graders. Her perplexed students soon discover the lesson she wants them to learn. While studying the founding of their country, they are challenged to understand the melting pot that makes up the American people—both past and present.

Based on a class assignment, students hear family stories connecting them to America’s earliest immigrants and settlers, as well as to the historical events their ancestors witnessed or experienced. Not only do the young people uncover personal connections to the past, but sometimes, connections to each other. It’s a story that deals with complex issues such as diversity, inclusion, multiculturalism, immigration, slavery, and antisemitism in an age-appropriate manner.
