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

Need some reading reccomendations?

Are you looking for a new series to get into? Are you ready to try a new genre or discover a new favorite author? One way we can grow as readers is to expand the types of books we read. NPR, National Public Radio, recently put out a list of the Top 100 young adult books of all time. Check it out and see if you can find a new favorite. Or you could just see how many of this list you have read.

For the comments of this post: You could put the number of books on this list you have read. What books belong on this list that are not there? Is there a book you think deserves to be higher?

**Spoiler** The Outsiders is #13
