Description:
"Information Quest: New Beginnings-Journey to America" is a brief activity designed for students to learn about the experience of survivors who immigrated to the United States in the post-war era. This Activity can be used as an extension to Lesson 8 in the Echoes and Reflections Teacher's Resource Guide.

Students will engage with a story using a built-in tool for generating a word cloud, a relevant title, a meaningful quotation, and a personal reflection to convey individual feelings and perceptions about the story. To culminate the activity, students will post their completed Information Quests to discuss with their classmates.
