Your students will become investigators on a history mystery analyzing primary and secondary sources surrounding the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. This activity includes over a dozen primary and secondary sources set up in 8 investigation stations and students' investigation packet. Teams of students work together to solve the mystery of what happened to the girls on the 9th floor of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory building. Includes a PowerPoint for teachers to use for the activity along with answers to the student's activity packet.
I print 2 sets of the documents and place both copies for each file inside a large envelope. After going through the mission briefing and instructions as a class, I give teams 4 to 5 minutes to view each file and answer the questions on their worksheet. Teams trade files (or you can have them move to the next station) and when the teams have seen all 8 files, we go over the answers to put the story together.
