History of Chicago -- Final Exam -- Chicago Scavenger Hunt
For your final exam in History of Chicago, I am sending you on a Scavenger Hunt. This hunt will for sure take you to the internet and hopefully on an exploration of a Chicago you haven’t really seen. While there are points available for using technology (like cell phones), you can still earn an A by using just a computer and the internet.
Students will have to turn in responses in an electronic format – word document, powerpoint presentation, and/or Instagram. It is very likely that you may wind up doing a combination of these things.
You must number your responses according the number on the direction sheet. If you do not, you will not receive credit.
If you are taking pictures and/or “selfies” (and not using instagram), you should create a powerpoint presentation with each answer represented on a different slide.
This will allow you to still participate in the “selfies” without having instagram.
Instagram – For “selfies”
If you have a smartphone, you can utilize Instagram (a free app).
