Synopsis

Liberty, Literacy, My Ancestry and Me - Fifth graders at Olivet Elementary School in Pittsgrove Township unveil their ancestry books during a Young Writers’ Celebration. The young authors learn the role of Ellis Island and the Statute of Liberty played to millions of immigrants. Thanks to a Hipp Grant, the students visited the sites and took photos and video of their trip. They interviewed relatives, created a family tree and presented it to their class. Their stories were turned into hard-cover books.
