In this creative lesson, students create picket signs from old paper boxes that tell the story of some of the most famous labor clashes in American History.

Included are 7 one-page stories on each of the following: The Homestead Strike, Haymarket Affair,Pullman Strike, Ludlow Massacre, Great Railroad Strike of 1877, Flint Sit-Down Strike, and Memorial Day Massacre.

In groups, students complete the reading and create a picket sign that tells the story of that strike and present them to the class. As groups present, a Venn Diagram helps students organize similarities and differences. Lastly, students complete a set of comprehension questions.

A rubric for the presentation is included as well as an page describing the procedures in detail and pictures of completed examples. This is a very fun activity that your student will remember and enjoy!
