With the start of a new semester we will also begin a new unit. We will investigate the Revolutionary changes wrought by the Industrial Revolution. This will include the changes brought by inventions and advances in technology but also the new ideas that emerged as a result of industrialization & urbanization. But first we will look at the Agricultural revolution in Great Britain and how that led to the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution in Britain. From there will examine the growth of industry in the textile industry which was advanced by inventions such as the steam engine. We will look at both inventions & the inventors. Afterwards you will complete an organizer looking at the definitions and purposes of the accomplishments of the Industrial Revolution. Below you will find the links to the Powerpoint and the organizer.
