  1. In what country did this child live? Was s/he rich or poor? Did he live in a city or the country?

    Children's lives in the 19th century ranged from working in coal mines to attending boarding schools to helping the family on a farm to working in a factory to attending a public school.

  3. Many children in rural America went to school for three or four years, although some never went to school and a few were lucky enough to attend school for 6 or 8 years. A small minority graduated from high school. They helped their parents on the farm -- girls were usually in the house and boys were usually in the barns and fields.

    They got up about sunrise and went to bed around sunset. They attended church on Sundays. Their toys were usually homemade. Family life was very important.
