How long has your family lived in New Jersey? Whether first or fourth generation your family is part of New Jersey’s story. This program is as much about New Jersey’s history as it is about each family’s story of coming to America. Each home school family will be asked to share a special object that relates to the journey their family took. Activities will help students understand and discuss issues from an immigrant’s perspective.
