ENL field trip to NYC

Students and teachers in front of the New York City skyline during their field trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

A group of 14 English as a New Language (ENL) students from Columbia High School and Goff Middle School recently visited the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island to gain a better understanding of American history. It was an exciting learning experience for the students because they had an opportunity to see firsthand how immigrants like themselves would have arrived in the United States.

ENL field trip to Ellis IslandThe field trip, funded through a special grant, included a ferry ride to Liberty Island and Ellis Island, a tour through the Ellis Island Museum, and a pedestal pass which allowed the students to go up to the viewing deck of the pedestal just below Lady Liberty’s feet.

“The students were thrilled to see the statue up close and took many photos to remember the day,” said ENL teacher Ida-Marie Lindberg. “Students also really appreciated the exhibit that displayed all of the items that were left at Ellis Island. Students enjoyed seeing items from their cultures and countries on display in the museum.”
