This is a great project to get students "in" to history. They are to pretend they live in the 1800s and through some investigative journalism, they are exposing the problems of poor working conditions and child labor. The students will be asked to do some research (websites are listed in the directions) and then describe a number of criteria. Your students will love this project. It is simply a must have for any Industrial Revolution unit.
