Really liked the activity, but a bit frustrating that the video is 'private'. Also, I couldn't get the 'mystery pictures' to reveal themselves on the Powerpoint and could not see what to do with them. Are there questions about the pictures?
Lesson based around 2 video links from BBC Class clips and using the Minds and Machines Text book to support.

This lesson as a dragons den style group task, pupils worked in groups of 5 and each analysed one of the five inventions during the Industrial revolution, they then choose one of the best inventions to invest their money in but being able to explain why.
