In this complete unit on the Industrial Revolution, students will investigate the contributions and impacts of the Industrial Revolution. They will develop an understanding of how the reform ideas spread around the world and led to advancements and urbanization in a number of nations, each impacting the next. Using those concepts, they will practice important skills such as reading primary and secondary sources, evaluating data, reading timelines, and tracing cause and effect.
