Objective: This Jeopardy-style game informs students about the many skills and jobs required
to construct a major building. Clues give activities associated with a particular job, and student
answers supply the type of worker. This lesson was created in conjunction with
http://whobuiltourcapitol.org and would be a good resource to use before visiting the Minnesota Capitol building.
