The Industrial Revolution for Kids: The People and Technology That Changed the World, with 21 Activities based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I always enjoy this series of books and this is no exception. I love how they have stories from people that lived during this time period as well as pictures to give students an idea of what it was like back then. My students just love looking at pictures and seeing how things have changed. Some of the activities that are included can easily be done in a classroom. Some of them include learning about Morse Code, designing a tenement space, model of an elevator, tracking manufactured items, inflate a dollar, do detective work, weave a placemat, and design a product for the World's Fair. Listening to Talking Walls is an activity where children examine the exterior of older building to see if they can determine the history of the building. My school in a historical part of the city and I totally see me kids getting into this activity. This book covers the good, the bad and the ugly that are the Industrial Revolution. The only thing I would have liked to have seen was how the Industrial Revolution started and evolved in Europe... Thanks go out to Chicago Review Press via NetGalley for a copy of the book for an honest review.
