Illinois er en delstat i Midtvesten med en rekke landskap og steder å besøke, fra Chicago til Starved Rock State Park. Et statlig forskningsprosjekt er den perfekte summative aktiviteten for alle amerikanske regioner, geografiklasser eller generelle forskningsenheter. Forskning er en viktig ferdighet for barn å lære i ung alder; det utsetter studentene for tekst, gir dem øvelse i å bestemme viktig informasjon, og forbedrer notater og presentasjonsferdigheter. Studentene vil like å lære alt om Illinois, og hvorfor det er et så fantastisk sted å bo og besøke.
Studentene kan illustrere historien til Illinois på en tidslinje og fremheve viktige hendelser fra før-statehood til moderne tid.

Because more and more Europeans were arriving, Native American tribes were forced to move out.

One of the worst fires in US history was the Great Chicago Fire. It started in a small barn in south Chicago on October 8th, although no one is sure how. Because the buildings and homes were made of wood with flammable roofs, they caught fire easily. There had also been a long drought and the winds were strong and dry. It destroyed over 17,000 buildings and homes, leaving about 100,000 people homeless.
The Willis Tower
