In this highly-engaging lesson, students learn about factory conditions and labor conditions in 19th century factories! Students react to images of child labor, complete a short writing assignment based on an excerpt from The Jungle by Upton Sinclair, view a video of life on an assembly line, then are enthralled with an assembly line simulation! A MP3 file has been included to play the "factory sounds" as students compete in the simulation!
One of the favorites every year!
