Industrial Revolution
How I introduced The Industrial  Revolution

To introduce the Industrial Revolution I did a “Lego” activity with my students. I would have teams of students working in an assembly line either constructing a bridge or a building. Each team had a specific responsibility in this process.

The children enjoyed competing against the other students in the class.


Our Invention

Another fun activity is to have teams of students "invent" an item. They are required to build a small model of their invention, create an advertising campaign for the product and introduce this to the class.
