Determining Where Governor Doyle is located
*Jim Doyle has made his way through nine different Wisconsin cities and is currently still at the tenth location. In order to determine where Jim is hiding you must read each clue carefully. Each clue will give you some information about one city in Wisconsin. You must use your knowledge of Wisconsin cities and towns or your ability to look up information on the web or in our class resource books to find the answer. As you find the answer to each clue, write it down. Writing down each answer is important, so please do not skip over it. If you do, you will be forced to go back when you reach clue ten! The final clue (clue ten) is slightly different than the preceeding nine clues. Clue ten is Governor Doyle's final location. In order to determine that location, you will be asked to follow some simple directions that will unscramble the town and lead you to your answer.
*Spelling of each city is VERY important! Please take the time to carefully check your spelling.
