Interactive video lesson plan for: The Industrial Revolution (18-19th Century)

Activity overview:

Introduction to some of the elements of the Industrial Revolution, more on this subject to come!

The economic developments of the 1800s saw the development of agrarian and handicraft economies in Europe and America transform into industrial urbanised ones.

The term to describe this phenomenon would be known as the ‘Industrial Revolution’ and was first used by French writers, but made popular by English economic historian Arnold Toynbee.
