As non-native people moved to Chicago—or Checagou, as the native people of the area called it—they had to decide what to bring with them. In today’s activity, kids will reflect on, write about, and draw what they would bring if they moved to a new place.
What makes an object precious? Is it useful or does it remind you of happy memories? Ask your kids to think about what items are important to them and write out the reasons why. Then, have them illustrate the objects they listed. When they’re done, take a picture of their work and share it on social media! #CHMatHomeFamilies
