This is a 23 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - The Agricultural Revolution. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
What historians commonly call the Agricultural Revolution began in the early 1700s with an Englishman, Jethro Tull, inventing a machine that planted seeds in neat rows called the seed drill.
Advances in agriculture had been slowly infiltrating agricultural Europe since Medieval times. Advances in farming were absolutely vital in order for Europe to maintain and feed a rapidly growing population.
The Industrial Revolution was the practical application of many of the advancing movements of the previous generations. The Renaissance created a thirst for knowledge. The Scientific Revolution resulted from the seeking of new knowledge beyond that understood by the ancients. The Industrial Revolution took many ideas of the Scientific Revolution and applied them directly to the daily life of individuals.
Though disruptive in its early years, the Industrial Revolution, coupled with free markets, helped bring prosperity to the developed world.
