Construction of the world’s first skyscraper began on this date in 1884.

The Home Insurance Company building in Chicago would be 10 stories tall — about 100 feet.

Today’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, is more than 160 stories tall — about 2,723 feet.

Explain why you think it’s a good or a bad idea for people to keep building taller skyscrapers.
