Do you know your ABC's? Avenues, Buildings & Chicago


Chicago SkylineWhat you need to know about Chicago!!

This project is designed to enhance everyone's knowledge about Chicago and the buildings within the city. The activity will provide students an opportunity to use primary resources on the Library of Congress' website to enhance their understanding of the history of Chicago's architecture along the river. The students will research many buildings. They are responsible for presenting a PowerPoint on the building of their choice. The culminating activity will allow the students to virtually build their own building by using the knowledge they have gained from previous assignments.
