E Scavenger Hunt:

To begin, read and research about the history of Seattle's ID:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinatown%E2%80%93International_District,_Seattle

https://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/asian_american_and_pacific_islander_heritage/Seattle-Chinatown-Historic-District.htm

https://historylink.org/File/1058

  1. Draw a grid of the international district, using S Main, 4th , 8th ave S, and Dearborn.
  2. Label:
  • streets,
  • Hing Hay Park,
  • Historic China Town Gate,
  • Danny Woo Garden,
  • King Street Station
  • Uwajimia
  • Wing Luke Museum

3. Following our plan - on the permission slip, label our destinations in order we will visit. The tour starts at the Wing Luke Museum.

4. Research and LABEL where you might like to go to lunch. You should mark them on the map with a key- what you would buy. Chose two restaurants each based on three different cuisines. Fusion can be one of the cuisines. Inside Uwajimiya counts. Bakeries count.

5. Research the grocery list on the Uwajimiya website and write down five items on your map that you have never eaten or heard of.

6. Research the Wing Luke Museum website, and list five things that spark interest to check out.
