This 46-slide power point presentation provides a comprehensive overview of the Industrial Revolution from its beginnings in Britain around 1750 through the turn of the 20th century. The presentation begins with a summary of the Agricultural Revolution and how the increases in population led to higher demand for goods, thus sparking the new machines of industrialization. It then takes students through the development of the first machines in the textile industry and covers such topics as child labor, urbanization, life in the factories, and the emergence of industrial cities. The first half concludes with a 15-slide primary source photograph selection that details the child labor in the early factories. The second half of the lecture notes cover the new economic thinking of industrialization - capitalism, socialism, and Marxism (communism) - before finishing up with the rise of big businesses and a list of new inventions/innovations of the Industrial Revolution.
Be sure to look for the "Industrial Revolution Guided Notes Outline" available on TpT that students can complete as the teacher lectures on the slides. Also look for the "Industrial Revolution Reading Summary and Questions" available which can be paired with the notes to create a short, three or four day unit on the Industrial Revolution.
