Looking for a one 30-45 minute lesson to teach the major inventions associated with the Industrial Revolution? I don't know about you, but my textbook doesn't "cut it" with the inventions. It seems the information is in multiple places and skips around. I created this lesson so that all of the inventions mentioned below are in one place! This can be used as a station activity or group work.
Recent update: Google Slides™ version included!
This lesson includes:
Graphic organizer for the students to fill out (with Key)
1 page summaries of the following inventions:
- Interchangeable Parts
- Steel Plow
- Mechanical Reaper/Threshing Machine
- Cotton Gin
- Telegraph/Morse Code
plus Exit Ticket
- The GOOGLE Slides™ version is very similar to the paper version. Students take notes on the graphic organizer slides and then have a drag and drop activity to rank the inventions.
