Invention Project - A classroom or homework invention helper
After learning about the different major inventions brought about during the Industrial Revolution, students can create their own invention and research how it would have impacted America during this time period.
I would use this worksheet to have students brainstorm the positives and negative results of the Industrial Revolution specifically in Texas. For this lesson, positive and negatives should include environmental as well as societal and economical affects.
