TOPIC 1 - INDUSTRIALIZATION
Topic Overview Lesson
WHOLE GROUP ACTIVITY
To get an idea about the factors involved in U.S. Industrialization, we will watch the following video as a class by the History Channel called, The Industrial Revolution. We will all watch it together on the t.v., but I have embedded it here for anyone absent or if you want to watch it again at home.
SMALL GROUP ACTIVITY
Look at the diagram below of the "Industrialization Gear Wheel". As a small group look at each tooth of the wheel. What do predict each of these "Factor Teeth" will cover? As a group, discuss what you think. Everyone must predict something different. One member in each group needs to submit the group's answers on the survey below the picture of the gear wheel. As a class, we will look at every groups' predictions when every group is done.
