Child Labor and Local Latino Workers

In this lesson students will examine child labor and the lack of child labor laws especially for Mexican children by exploring images, newspaper articles and factual accounts from primary resource sets. Using student choice, students are able to show their understanding through a student choice project at the end. There is also an extension to another lesson created by a teacher in the Boulder County Latino History Project (BCLHP) who was actually a migrant child worker.
