The History of Your Chicago River

Young scholars examine the history of the Chicago River. In groups, they identify the problems of the watershed and develop possible solutions. As a class, they examine the importance of the river to the Chicago area by reading a story. To end the instructional activity, they create an object or write a poem that shows how they feel about the river and share it with the class.
