Effects of the Industrial Revolution Walking Tour or Gallery Walk Activity

Want an easy to prep resource for teaching the Effects of the Industrial Revolution?

Want students to practice primary source analysis as they investigate the many effects of the era?

This is a 10 card activity which requires students to view 10 image and information cards on specific effects of the Industrial Revolution. This entire activity is in PDF format, allowing the teacher greater versatility in use and with printing or presentation.

In one option, students travel around the room to view each placard. They will take the data down onto a provided handout and will follow prompts to analyze the information and apply it to modern times.

The activity is followed by a quick content review with wrap-up questions, and an essay assignment asking students to make a comparison to modern issues.

Teacher directions are provided in the notes sections.
