Industrial Revolution Inventions Infomercial Group Project
This is a fantastic cooperative learning project on major inventions and inventors of the Industrial Revolution that will have your students engaged, having fun, and learning!
Included is a directions page on how to present a 1 minute infomercial to the class along with 7 one-page readings on different inventions of the industrial period. In groups students read about their assigned inventor/invention and plan their "infomercial".
As each group presents, other students fill out the included graphic organizer on the 7 inventions and inventors. An answer key for this is included along with a rubric for the infomercial presentation.
My students love this project and always come up with some hilarious pitches for these inventions that they remember the rest of the year!
