Migration to and Within the United States in the Late 1800s and early 1900s

The goal is to familiarize students with some of the countries of origin for migrants in the 19th and early 20th centuries and to familiarize them with settlement patterns across the country in both urban and rural settings using maps at different scales (world, country, city).
