Product Description
I created this play to enhance a lesson in my Industrial Revolution unit. The lesson is Entrepreneurs and Inventors in the Industrial Revolution. This play is how I begin. It is engaging and the students enjoy it.

This is what I do. The play takes about 10-15 minutes. I only give out copies to the students with the six parts. I am the narrator for this one, however, you can organize it how you wish.

The students really like the part when Margaret Arkwright is speaking through the door to Richard. I actually have the student stand outside the door. I keep the door open a crack so when can hear her. It has a great effect!

After the play, I have the students write down as much as they can remember about Richard Arkwright on a piece of loose leaf paper or you could do on a device - iPad or computer.

I give them a couple of minutes. Then we discuss and debrief. He was considered to be the "Father of the Factory System" and had the "traits" or "characteristics" of what the typical British Industrialist Entrepreneur needed to be successful in that day.

We then move on in our lesson. Once again, it is a fun and engaging way to begin any lesson about the Industrial Revolution in regards to inventions, entrepreneurs, the factory system of labor, etc...
