Transport Revolution 1750 - 1900: Birth of the Railways

(0)
These are outstanding resources which I have used many times over the past 25 years in one shape or another during lesson observations with Ofsted and or LEA advisors. They form part of a series that I have uploaded to the TES on the Transport Revolution 1750 - 1900. These particular resources focus on the birth of the railways up to the period known as 'Railway Mania' in the 1850s. The PowerPoint is designed to work alongside the worksheet, but it can be used as an independent resource on a school VLE or in a lesson. The PowerPoint includes aims, objectives, starters and three activities that are accessible to a wide spectrum of learners. These activities include a snowballing starter of the key words, a heads and tails activity as well as a thinking skills review triangle activity on what were the most important steps / inventions to the birth of the railways. The worksheet includes similar activities, but also includes several much harder questions to help extend middle and higher ability students. The PowerPoint also contains a number of linked in video clips and animated steam engines. I would like to add that I am not a train spotter, but I've always found that my students, especially the boys have thoroughly enjoyed this topic so put the fun back into the industrial revolution by looking a few machines rather than just focusing on social history. The aims and objectives are: Theme: Transport Revolution 1750 - 1900 Know: Why were the important steps to the introduction of the steam locomotive? Understand: What were the causes of ‘Railway Mania’? Evaluate: Why did the railways rapidly grow from 1830 – 1900? Skills: Cause, Consequence, Significance and Source Analysis WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: The key inventions that were necessary for the invention of the locomotive? Explain: What was ‘Railway Mania’? Analyse: Begin to come to a judgement on which factor to the introduction of the railways? Anyway, have fun with these resources. They are full editable. If you like them, then please check out some of my other resources on the building of the railway and their impact of the economy. Kind Regards Roy

Market Place Activity: Textile Industry 1750 - 1900

(3)
This outstanding resource has been designed to help students studying how the Industrial Revolution changed the Textile Industry between 1750 - 1900. It is suitable for a range of learners and includes some great ideas and strategies to try out with your students. The information for the market place activity on the on the new inventions which transformed the textile industry has been beautifully presented and carefully linked to the decline of the domestic system and the birth of factories and mills. The follow up activities look at how the new machines changed the way people worked and looks at some of their negative reactions. The resource includes a PowerPoint with aims, objectives, a snowballing starter and an introduction and activity which gets students to draw links between the population explosion and the increased demand for more textiles. The next five slides, which can be printed off on A4 or A3, contain information on the Flying Shuttle,The Spinning Jenny, The Water Frame, the Mule and the Power Loom. I have also produced a summary table for each table for the students to complete. This could be printed off or copied off the board, depending upon your photocopy budget. I usually get each table to feed back on one invention and then complete a class version on the board, depending upon the ability of the class. The next few slides include a link to a video clip and explain the impact of the new machines on peoples lives. This is followed up two source based questions and a link to the song 'Poverty Knock.' Where appropriate, I have provided differentiated activities. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an Industrial Revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why did Britain's Textile Industry change 1750 - 1900? Understand: How did each new invention contribute to the changes? Evaluate: What impact did these new machines have on peoples’ lives? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Why did Britain's textile industry change 1750 - 1900? Explain: How did each new machine contribute to the changes taking place? Analyse: What impact did these new machines have on peoples’ lives? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

Worksheet: Why did Britain's population 'explode' 1750 -1900?

This lesson resource has been designed to help students studying the historical controversy surrounding why Britain's population increased from 1750 - 1900. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability, but the text level of the sources would better suit lower middle to upper ability students. However, if you like this resource, I have also produced a PowerPoint and a card sort, which provide additional differentiation. These can be purchased separately or as a package under the same title . When you purchase this resource you will be able to download an editable, two page Microsoft Word document which includes an introduction which sets the scene and five sources that look at the issue of why Britain's population increased. The first question gets students to summarise what they can learn from each source about why the population increased, whilst the follow up questions look deeper into the underlying causes and get students to compare and contrast them. The final question sets the scene for the next topic by getting students to draw up a list of the pros and cons of an expanding population. My card sort on this topic would make an excellent plenary for this lesson. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an industrial revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why did Britain's population increased from 1750 - 1900? Understand: What factors caused this change? Evaluate: How far was the population increase due to a decline in the death rate? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Why the population increased in size? Explain: What factors caused this change? Analyse: Make a judgement on how far the increase was due to an increase in the birth rate? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

The second lesson in a series I am creating to investigate the Industrial Revolution. All resources for the teaching of this lesson are included in the PP including a varied selection of sources which can be printed off and used for the investigation. Students begin with a short crossword which recaps the key terms about the period. 16 different sources are given in the PP so they can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom. The skill tested is inference which will be needed for assessment at GCSE, this will be a useful practice for students lower down the school. Students then select upto 6 of the sources to complete a table with what they can see and then what they have inferred from the source about the Industrial Revolution. There are two GCSE inference questions at the end to give students as a challenge if needed. Plenary also included. This lesson will be available on its own and a bundle once the unit has been completed.

The PowerPoint is design to support the worksheet, but can be used independently. The activities are designed to appeal to a wide range of learners. There are five activities in the PowerPoint including, a snowballing starter of the key words, a class debate, heads and tails, labelling exercise and a word search. The aims and objectives are: Theme: Transport Revolution 1750 - 1900 Know: What problems faced engineers whilst building the railways? Understand: How did engineers overcome the shape of the land? Evaluate: Why did the railways rapidly grow from 1850 – 1900? Skills: Cause, Consequence, Significance and Source Analysis WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: how railway engineers built the railways? Explain: How railway engineers overcame the shape of the land? Analyse: Begin to come to a judgement on why the railways expanded rapidly between 1850 – 1900? The PowerPoint also includes some links to some amazing videos on You Tube. Please remember that the PP must be in show mode in order for the hyperlink to work. Anyway, have fun with this lesson. My students always love it. Its fully customisable as everything in provided in Microsoft documents.
