The Chrysler Bldg and the Empire State Bldg look alike but you will learn the differences between them in our unit on NYC.

Projects are due Monday, at 15 pts.
Quality of presentation will be scored at 5 pts.
We have 2 days in the library to get the project almost complete.
* Five slides with large photos.

* Brief background - 3 bulleted phrases - on each slide.
* One slide must focus on a comparison (your choice of comparison topic).

Among our objectives in this unit ...
