Immigration Project

For this project you will be partner up and research an immigrant group that came to the United States during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Your group will then create a Prezi to present your research to the class. The work on this Prezi will be divided though, and instead of getting up and presenting to the class you will record a voice over for your Prezi. One person will be graded on the script and voice over for the Prezi. The other person will be graded on the Prezi itself.

In addition to creating the Prezi you will also be cooking a traditional dish of food from the culture you are researching. On the day of presentations we will watch the Prezis you created and eat, so please make enough food for the entire class to sample it. Also keep in mind any food sensitivities any of your classmates might have. Include the dish in your Prezi as well.
