Product Description
My students loved this activity as a wrap-up to reading articles about the Triangle Factory Fire, as well as an excerpt from the novel "Uprising".

We explored the website https://trianglefire.ilr.cornell.edu/ to read REAL testimonies of the people that survived the fire and created a "newspaper headline" for a survivor of their choice. The stories we found were so incredible! One woman survived by wrapping a scarf around her hands and sliding down an elevator cable! Several women describe getting offered bribes during the trial. My students really enjoyed reading real testimonies and filling out this "newspaper" for the person they chose.

I hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did. If you use it, please leave a rating and feedback!
