Read pp. 63-67 in your Washington Journey book. This will get you started, but you will have to do additional research. The below are general questions I want you to answer but you should include any facts that you think are interesting and relevant to the project. Your team will be assigned their immigrant group once you have the Hangouts meeting with me.
Team Member 1 - Why did this group of people immigrate to the US? What was going on in their home countries? How did most of them get to the US?
Team Member 2 - What did the immigrants do for work when they arrived? How were they treated? What was their overall experience like in coming to Washington State?
Team Member 3 - Find a personal story of at least one immigrant and be prepared to share. You will also prepare a short journal entry as if you were this person going about their typical day.
Team Member 4 (this is for Team 7 who is pre-assigned Japanese immigrants) - What were Japanese communities like in Washington AFTER WWII? What did the process of coming home look like for those interned? Compare population numbers in major Washington cities, before and after the war.
