This lesson will have students delve deeper into critical thought, and encourage a social justice perspective by having students compare and contrast the child labor of the Industrial era with the child labor that exists today. A 22 minute documentary film titled "Zoned for Slavery: The Child Behind the Label' supplements this lesson.
