This resource is a two page PDF document on how the Industrial Revolution in Britain contributed to Australian colonisation.
The first page is a cause and effect activity for the students to complete and the second page is a teacher reference sheet of the activity with an example of the type of answer students would be expected to give.
This activity was written to use with the new Australian Curriculum History K-10 Syllabus. The unit it was written for is a Stage 3 unit titled "The Australian Colonies" but could be used for any study on the history of British Colonisation or the First Fleet.
