Assuming the identities of immigrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, third graders experienced what it was like to travel through Ellis Island. During the Mock Ellis Island activity, teachers and staff played the roles of various processors who interrogated the immigrants on their health, education, character, and employment, while Lower School Head "Justice" Kim Davidson swore in those who successfully gained admittance to America.
