Response to Toy Company

I really liked how the group started out with an activity for the class to do. I feel it got us kind of moving around and woke us up a little bit before they started talking. As for the activity it self, it was a good introduction to get us all thinking in the sense of what an assembly line should work. As for your presentation itself, you guys did a good job on keeping us involved while you were getting your point across in the lectures.

The Toy Company experiment, seemed like a good idea for the students, and for the most part it really seemed like the students were making the connections of what it was like for child laborers in the beginning of the 19th century. There didn’t seem to be to many literacy activities in this activity, but I still feel that this activity got the kids to understand the point of the labor laws.
