Factories in the Industrial Revolution

Today we ran the Factory Game simulation in class. I hope that you enjoyed the activity and got a sense of what it might have been like to work in an early factory.

Since we have Digital Citizenship Camp tomorrow and Friday, you have a larger than usual amount of homework.

Wednesday: Complete the Factory Game Debrief
Thursday: Read The Outsiders ch. 6-7
Friday and the Weekend: Finish watching Mill Times
