The program includes historic and contemporary photo comparisons, a walking tour around Washington Square Park, and an art project where students will create a picture frame based on their memories of the symbols and stories found in the Arch.
Immigration in the South Village (Grades 1-8)
Your class will learn about immigrant life and how large-scale immigration led to new building forms in New York City, from single family rowhouses to multi-family tenements. Students will engage with maps and historic photographs to learn about immigration, become history detectives as they actively observe, sketch, and analyze the built environment of an immigrant community on a walk through the South Village, and draw, color, and construct a postcard booklet of their trip through a changing community.
