This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - The Rust Belt. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The term “Rust Belt” refers to what once served as the hub of American Industry. Located in the Great Lakes region, the Rust Belt covers much of the American Midwest. Also known as the “Industrial Heartland of North America”, the Great Lakes and nearby Appalachia were utilized for transportation and natural resources. This combination enabled thriving coal and steel industries.
Today, the landscape is characterized by the presence of old factory towns and post-industrial skylines.
At the root of this 19th century industrial explosion is an abundance of natural resources. The mid-Atlantic region is endowed with coal and iron ore reserves are essential products required to produce steel.
Corresponding industries were able to grow through the availability of these commodities as well.
Another essential natural resource is water and transportation resources necessary for production and shipment. Factories and plants for coal, steel, automobiles, automotive parts, and weapons dominated the industrial landscape of the Rust Belt.
The presentation covers the following:
