SARASOTA, Fla. - A Suncoast elementary school social studies program is teaching students about how America became the melting pot that it is.

Friday, students at Phillippi Shores Elementary got a hands-on lesson in what it was like for immigrants looking for a better life in the United States, as they recreated Ellis Island circa 1902 at the school.

ABC 7's Roderick Fetsch has the story.
