Lessons, worksheets and units of work for teaching the Industrial revolution to your students

The 18th and 19th centuries saw an industrial revolution in the United Kingdom. This boom in industry, technology and productivity changed the face of the British landscape and transformed centuries-old social order with the rise of a wealthy new middle class. As a consequence of these changes, and the rapid scale of industrialisation in towns and cities, there became a greater need for social reform as poor health and sanitary conditions were exposed.
