Monday's Lesson Plan
The Industrial Revolution changed every aspect of the world. Huge factories were built to house the new machines that sped up the making of products. Instead of individual craftsmen making products like cloth, shoes, and tools, factory machines made them. This meant that products could be made faster and for less money. Products could then be sold cheaper.
Tuesday's Lesson Plan
Using steam as an energy source had a great impact on the Industrial Revolution. James Watt built a revised more efficient steam engine. This new steam engine was first used to pump water out of mining shafts. This allowed for faster and deeper mining. Soon steam was being used to power many factory machines.
Wednesday's Lesson Plan
The Industrial Revolution brought an enormous amount of change to the world. Every aspect of life was changed by the industrialization of England and then America. This change led the Impressionists to take time to study the ordinary things around them. They spent time observing nature and people. They studied the new things and the old things. They wanted people to remember how things were before the Industrial Revolution, so they painted them.
Thursday's Lesson Plan
The landscape changed with the Industrial Revolution. Factories could be scene along the horizon, train tracks crisscrossed along the ground, and canals intersected rivers. Everywhere were new sights, sounds and smells.
Friday's Lesson Plan
The Industrial Revolution naturally brought on huge changes in industry. It also made society more aware of the plight of children. Many children were forced to work long hours in the factories at this time. People like Friedrich Froebel realized how important it was for children to do the work of children not adults. Froebel invented kindergarten for this purpose.
