- Product Description
This Industrial Revolution Inventions project will have your students engaged and having fun with cooperative learning about the major inventions and inventors of the Industrial Age.
Included is a directions page on how to present a 1 minute infomercial to the class along with 7 one-page readings on different inventions of the industrial period. In groups students read about their assigned inventor/invention and plan their "infomercial".
As each group presents, other students fill out the included graphic organizer on the 7 inventions and inventors. The readings on inventions include the light bulb, telephone, Bessemer Process, elevator, airplane, assembly line, and Kodak camera. An answer key for this is included along with a rubric for the infomercial presentation.
My students love this project and always come up with some hilarious pitches for these inventions that they remember the rest of the year!
