As you study colonization, the term immigration is used to describe the various groups of people who arrived in North America from the 1600′s to the present. Based on your current readings think about who came to the shores of North America and their reasons for coming here. Who were they and what were their reasons for immigrating here? Since then many other groups have arrived in what is now known as the United States. Ask five other adults for the reasons for immigrating here. Then respond in a summary paragraph to as what your findings are and compare the immigrants of the 1600′s and those who recently immigrated within the last 70 years. Due date 9/17.
