Summary
A review of the century that transformed the world from “make-your-own-everything to a society of manufactured goods, this activity book chronicles the development of the Industrial Revolution. Young readers are introduced to the individuals who led this radical change, learning how such a revolution affected the lives of everyone—rich and poor, city dwellers and farmers alike. Beginning with the Industrial Revolution first taking hold in England, this guide follows its progression to North America, illustrating the many societal changes—from civil rights to the growth of unions—that came about as a result of a shift in the way goods and services were created and consumed. Retracing the era's evolution to include developments in transportation and communication, this handbook also covers elements of history, biography, and civics. Activity-driven enrichment projects that kids can do with minimal supervision include creating a water-powered wheel, designing a steam ship, building a telegraph machine, and making a pinhole camera
