This is great for my ELL kids. Some can identify with the child labor issue, and others can relate to the migrant worker info. They have amply opportunity to learn about the Industrial Revolution while hitting many language arts Common Core objectives. I can't wait to get started!

no doubt the lesson plan is wonderful but in an academic session where i have to complete 25 odd lessons or topics this lesson becomes lengthy to handle. it i could get smaller plans
