Abstract [en]

This paper is a study with two different aspects, with a main focus of the match factory in Jönköping. The first aspect is about how the work situation for children looked like in the match factory during the 1900 - century. The children´s work history over time, the children’s workday and life situation on the factory and outside is described in this paper. The second aspect in this paper is about how the pupils learn about their local history in the 3 and 4 grade. Do the teachers learn their pupils about the factory or not when they study their local history. If they do not, what causes have the teachers mentioned. Answers are too found in this paper.

The material concerning the questions if the match factory used children as workers in their production have I received from a visit on the match factory museum and from an interview with the manager of the museum. The manager also helped me find the material and he gave some information where to find more material as well. An interview with teachers in third to fifth grade in schools in and around Jönköping was the main thing in the second material study. The interview contained questions about how the teachers teach their pupils about local history and if they use the match factory in Jönköping as a complement to the education.

The study showed a lot of different perspectives of how teachers in and around Jönköping have chosen to or not to involve the match factory in the teaching of the local history of Jönköping. The study also show that the environment for young children during this time was very harsh. They had to work almost as much as older people with the same burden but for just a third of the salary, all because of the factory owner´s will to earn as much money as possible.
