Last winter the 3rd grade students of Field Park, Forest Hills, and Laidlaw spent the day downtown touring the Chicago History Museum where they learned about the World’s Fair exhibits, the Chicago Fire, and how sky scrapers are built. The 3rd graders then experienced a trolley tour and visited the Chicago Fire Academy and saw where the infamous Mrs. O’Leary’s house used to be. This interactive and fun day in downtown Chicago brought to life the history students were learning in the classroom and helped them complete their Chicago tourism project.
