I have used this self-made flow chart of the key inventions and inventors of the Industrial Revolution in World History 2 Honors classes. The flowchart is broken into 4 topics- transportation & communications, agriculture, medicine, and industry. In some cases students are required to provide the name of the invention to a provided inventor and in some cases the invention is provided and students must provide the name of the inventor.
Most of the inventors are European but there are some American inventors.
There is an attached answer key.
Has been a successful assignment for an individual HW or a group activity in class.
