The Cornerstones of Freedom series will introduce elementary-age students to the institutions and events that have shaped the United States, from the country's beginning to the current day.
Ellis Island covers the transformation of New York City's Ellis Island into an immigration station, what immigrants had to go through to get into the United States, what happened to those who were turned away, and more, through easy-to-understand chapters filled with photographs and interesting sidebars.
These non-fiction books will help students learn to draw information from informational texts; each book features a table of contents, chapters, sidebars, an original map showing people and events, a "setting the scene" spread, "the story continues" closing, "influential individuals" list, timeline, and list of primary sources.
