This is an exciting lesson that teaches kids about the relationship between labor and capital. It can be used for a United States History class OR an introduction to more serious economics lessons. It provides a fun and exciting experience for even the reluctant learner. By the end of the lesson, kids will literally be jumping out of their seats to get "hired" by the Robber Barons in your fictional factory. Comes complete with all of the roles that will be played and an instruction sheet.
