Think of the stores that you have seen. How many kinds can you name? What does each sell principally? Where are these things made? Have you ever seen a large factory? What does it manufacture?

It would be fine if all of the buildings in which folks work were sunny, airy and clean. People employed in comfortable stores and factories are happy and feel like working.

Alas! there are many miserable places where the workmen are crowded and uncomfortable. The impure air makes them tired and ill. If you have seen a good store or factory tell what helps to keep the workers comfortable and healthy.

Notebook Work: Schedule an outing to look at a local factory or find an image online and sketch the outside of the building in your notebook.
