Photo-Essay Project: Use a powerpoint or a multi-media collage with captions to compare and contrast child labor during the Industrial Revolution to modern child labor. Students can, if they choose with teacher permission, focus on a different comparison, for example - comparing housing then and now, or factory conditions for all workers then and now.
