PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CHICAGO HISTORY MAKERS PRINTABLES: A Unit about famous Chicago inventions and innovations with activities

Pair with *CHICAGO HISTORY MAKERS* and *TIMELINES OF CHICAGO HISTORY* !!!

Chicago Historical Creations is a collection of 2-page informational text articles of 10 notable Chicago innovations. They were chosen for their impact on Chicago and the U.S., with an eye to interest to children and diversity of subjects. Included are 5 vocabulary words per article. You will probably be amazed, as I was, when you hear about the wide variety of things with roots in Chicago!

Each article is accompanied by an activity worksheet with 3 parts.
1) 5 close statements about the invention
2) A vocabulary puzzle of a different type for each article
3) An activity that asks for the student's input in various ways: such as making a drawing, cause and effect, or sequencing.

Each reading can be used independently in any order, not only for social studies, but for informational text reading practice, with an eye on Common Core Standards. Their short length makes them ideal for a quick classroom lesson or an appropriate homework assignment.

The articles included are:
Chicago World's Columbian Exhibition
Midway & Ferris Wheel
Food Products
Zipper
Toys
Wrigley's Gum
Candy
Music: Gospel, Jazz, & Blues
The Skyscraper
Schwinn Bikes
