This is a content heavy- one week 22 page unit on the causes of Labor Day geared towards 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students, but I've used it with 7th-8th graders, and they enjoyed it as well. The following topics are covered in this 30 page lesson:
The Industrial Revolution
Child Labor- Primary Sources (quotes from child laborers)
Also included: Answer keys, and a 7 page career report and 32 task cards focusing on the reading comprehension passages.
Task card topics include:
Finding the Main Idea
Cause and Effect
Point of View
Plus an enrichment bonus card.
