The Industrial Revolution in 7th grade history

The girls are enjoying learning about life during the early 1800s as our nation experienced the Industrial Revolution and subsequent reform movements.  They are completing a project in which they become a fictional character in history and explain their life through visual and written descriptions.  Each student randomly selected a character based on age, gender, race, ethnicity, and regional location.  Some are slaves, some are children, some are factory workers, some are married, and so on.  They have found it challenging but fun to research information and then create a story about “their” life.  Stop by my room next week to see the results.
