Child Labor During The Industrial Revolution



You will take on the role of a child labor. What was life like for people your age and younger during the Industrial Revolution?  You will analyze a series of Web sites containing information on the various types of jobs children worked during this time.  You must carefully research your role. You must decide what reforms should be made in order to help you change your situation! 

Each team member will research one of the following roles: 
  • Factory Worker 
  • Miner 
  • Seafood Worker/Farm Hand 
  • Newsboy 
When you are finished, you will meet to discuss your roles and then choose which job your group thinks was the worst for the time period.
