The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was a formative event in Chicago’s history and is represented by the second star on the city’s flag. Today, we’ll be looking at artifacts that melted in the fire and inquiring about what they may have been.

Ask your kids to use their deductive reasoning and creative skills to create an artifact of their own. When they’re done, take a picture of their artifact and share it on social media! #CHMatHomeFamilies
