Teacher Resources and Student Materials
These resources will help you prepare for all aspects of your Catholic Chicago field trip. The materials are flexible, can be used with students of all ages, and may be modified to fit your classroom needs.
Gallery Conversation Cards
The gallery conversation cards will help you frame your exploration of the Museum. The cards highlight seven themes related to life in Chicago—people, place, work, community, education, reform, and celebration—and can be used in the Chicago: Crossroads of America exhibition.
Build on your visit to the Museum with these back in the classroom activities. The activities are designed around universal themes about life in Chicago and use quotations from oral history interviews to illustrate those themes.
