This Tobacco bag stringing: Secondary activity seven lesson plan also includes:

Challenge your pupils' abilities in evaluating primary sources, while gaining historical empathy and higher-order thinking skills as they take on the role of a legislator who must amend the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. Learners evaluate the source, discuss what needs to be amended, and develop arguments for the amendment. The next day is the legislature simulation where the arguments are presented and voted on. If you cannot use the subject of Fair Labor or tobacco bag stringing in your class, any historical amendment could be used instead.
