Heritage Vocabulary

Keep an index card file of words studied while reading about immigrant experiences.

Keeping the words on index cards will help you when we sort words by prefix, suffix, root words, meaning, country of origin, spelling feature, and more.

Just as we can trace the path of our ancestors, we can trace the path of words.

Choose some words and trace back from modern-day uses of the words to their historical origins
(e.g., culture, heritage, immigration, emigration, immigrant, endowment, lineage, racism, tolerance, legacy, ancestry, etc.).

In addition, create an individual semantic map of the phrase "embracing heritage” in order to represent visually your understanding of this phrase. (RL.6.4, L.6.4)
