Question Part 3: Task

You recently got a job to write short stories for a children’s magazine. The magazine’s feature article for the month is about Chicago in the late 1800s. Your task is to write a short story illustrating what life was like during this time period, so your young readers will feel like they were there in the that time period. You will write a short story based on a fictional character, however the challenges and setting will be real for that historical time period. Remember your goal is to make your reader feel as though they are in Chicago in 1871.
