Industrial revolution introduction- What caused the population increase?

This PowerPoint will take two classes to complete. It will get your students interested in Britain during the 1800's and in the changes that were happening in Britain before the Industrial Revolution. The PowerPoint covers 11 reasons for the population increase in Britain, all of which can be elaborated on in class to give the students a chance to take independent notes on each reason. The PowerPoint includes homework that the students must complete in order to consolidate their learning. At the end of the PowerPoint the students are shown several images (some of which are shown in the cover image for this resource), all of which will indicate one of the reasons for the population increase and they can work in teams to see who can guess the reason first. This resource allows students to do most of the work and requires minimum effort from the teacher. Students get involved no matter how weak or strong their capabilities are and it sets a good standard for the beginning of this topic.

Industrial Revolution

Wanted a resource that had all the key information about The Industrial Revolution all in one place. After hunting around, I stumbled upon some great information on the Woodlands Junior website, so used it to create a Powerpoint I can dip in and out of with my Year 6's - as some of mine need information split into smaller chunks rather than being faced with a whole page of writing. It isn't particularly 'flashy', but covers all the main areas that were affected during this time in Britain. All credit goes to Woodlands for the information.
