Citizenship & Learning School & College Tours to New York
New York’s long and complex immigration history is both inspirational and hugely educational when trying to understand America’s melting pot culture and heritage. For the past 250 years immigrants from all over the world have been arriving in the “Land of opportunity” through New York. By studying the immigrant origin trends, school groups can correlate it to world history events, such as the potato famine in Ireland and economic and political instabilities throughout the world. Students will also analyse their assimilation process and integration levels. With so much educational potential, a study trip to New York will further enhance your school group’s understanding of Citizenship and Learning.
