Catholic Chicago

Posted under Classroom Resources for Grades 3, 4, 5

These resources were originally developed in 2008 for Catholic Chicago, a temporary exhibition, and can be adapted for use in the Chicago: Crossroads of America exhibition. The gallery conversation cards will help you frame your exploration of the Museum and highlight seven themes related to life in Chicago—people, place, work, community, education, reform, and celebration. Build on your visit to the Museum with our back-in-the-classroom activities, which are designed around universal themes about life in Chicago and use quotations from oral history interviews to illustrate those themes.
