  • Do Now question- “How did the Industrial Revolution impact family life?” (3 minutes)
  • Pick up the “Effects of the Industrial Revolution” page from the table at the front of the room. You will work in groups of 3 to complete the chart, filling in information on the positive effects, negative effects, and ways to improve the negative effects of the industrial revolution by going to each of 10 stations around the room. Please circulate around the room clockwise. You will only have 5 minutes at each station, so you will need to act quickly. You may supplement this information with pages 289-294 in your text.
  • By the end of the period, you should have information for all 10 topics. It is possible that some topics will have no obvious positive or negative effects, but work to think of possibilities.
