Description

In this lesson, from SCORE, students find out what it was like to have to work instead of having the chance to go to school. They analyze primary source documents about early factory labor, read a historical novel about the time, and then research modern day youth labor issues. As a culminating activity, students write a poem or labor song. This resource is referenced in the ReadWriteThink lesson titled "Child Labor: Giving Voice to the Industrial Revolution Through Monologues."
