This Industrial Revolution Resource tasks students with making connection from the past to aspects of today’s society. It requires them to think critically and research how past concepts are still prevalent today.
This Industrial Revolution was a time of change and prosperity and like any historical event, many connections to the present day can be found in the history of that time period. For this activity, students are tasked with finding present day current events that relate to concepts from the Industrial Revolution. These concepts and ideas include:
- Innovations and Inventions
- Women’s Rights and Women in Power
- Workplace Safety Regulations
- Consumer Economics
- Industrial Growth and Manufacturing
- The Middle Class
This worksheet is set up as a graphic organizer. Students will find a current event based on the concepts listed and describe and then create a visual for the event/concept. This activity can be completed on the computer or printed for student use.
This product includes a Microsoft Word and PDF version of the resource.
This is version 2 of this resource. Version 1 includes the same general set-up but with different concepts and topics for students to analyze. If you are interested in version 1, please click on the link: Industrial Revolution: Connecting Past with Present.
