Learning about the Industrial Revolution will be memorable after completing this group project! Students will be grouped into teams of 5 and will work together to invent an object that can be used to increase production in the classroom.
I've tried to make this project integrate several subject areas, including social studies (history of the Industrial Revolution), language arts (writing, reflection, marketing), science (physics, mechanics), art (marketing), and music (marketing).
This project is completed in 7 steps, beginning with brainstorming and going through each step to the finished product; a working prototype. Students will also create a marketing campaign to sell their product and will present their prototype to the rest of the class.
I've also included a grading rubric at the end.
I appreciate your feedback! Let me know if your students enjoyed this project as much as mine have! :D
