This lesson investigates the working conditions for poor children in the factories and mills of growing industrial towns. Students are provided with an illustrated fact sheet (see image) to help them identify and understand the typical day of a child worker. Students are then given a choice of three activities (for you to also chose from). Each activity has a worksheet if needed. 1: Produce a mind map for students to identify the key themes of a typical working day such as hours, health etc. 2: Produce an interview asking a child about their day. 3: Produce a storyboard for a documentary/film about the working conditions. A map has also been created which students can use as a starter to identify key types of industry in key areas of the country. This is one I have produced myself in order to make this clearer to students.
