Africa. Tey migrated out of Africa to the Middle
East and then to the rest of the world. Troughout
history, people have migrated from one place to
another. People, it seems, like to move.
Since the 17th century, many European people

Spain and Portugal and moved to South America.
Many Northern Europeans migrated to North
America. In the United States, most people arrived
in New York. Some stayed on the East Coast, but
many people migrated to the West Coast.
So, why do people move? First, there is
economic migration. People move to fnd
work and a good life. Second, there is forced
migration. People move because of wars; it is
not safe to stay in their homes.
Of course, many people dont migrate. Tey stay
in the same place all their lives. But people like
to visit diferent countries on their vacations.
People, it seems, just like to move.
