Lowell Mills Visits Fox Hill

On Monday, November 7, Fox Hill 4th graders learned about immigrants coming to America through the Tsongas Industrial History Center's (Lowell Mills) "Exploring the Immigrant Experience" program. Through this program, students examined the experiences of those who have settled in New England in the late 1800s through the 2000s. Working with primary sources (oral histories and artifacts), students explored elements of the immigrant story ~ the decision to leave their homeland, the journey, hardships, assimilation, preserving culture, and how immigrant groups have helped to shape American culture.
