Great Chicago Stories Interactive History Map


 

"This series of stories for elementary and high school students bring Chicago's history alive through experiences of fictional but typical kids living in Chicago over the last century. A companion to each story is an interactive map that shows high-resolution photographs of the locations described in the story, both at the time of the story's setting and the present. Using Yahoo! Maps within the activity, users can explore the story's neighborhood and see where it is in relation to their own home or school. Artifacts from the collections of the Chicago History Museum connect the objects of everyday life to the people who might have used them."
