This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - A Comparison of the 1st & 2nd Industrial Revolution. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Industrial Revolution was the period contained by the late 18th and 19th centuries when a major change in agriculture, industrial, and transportation had a profound effect on socioeconomic and cultural conditions within Britain that subsequently spread throughout the world.
The Industrial Revolution marked a distinct major turning point within human social history, comparable to the invention of farming or the rise of the first city-states. Almost every aspect of daily life and human society was eventually influenced in some way. The insatiable emergency of the railways for more durable rail lead to the development of the resources to cheaply mass-produce steel.
Steel is often cited as the first of several strange areas for industrial mass-production, which are said to characterize a Second Industrial Revolution, beginning around 1850. This Second Industrial Revolution little by little grew to include the chemical industries, petroleum refining and distribution, electrical industries, and, in the 20th century, the automotive industries. A transition of mechanical leadership occurred from Britain to the United States and Germany.
