The words industrial revolution often make us think of greasy, sooty men working on enormous machines making incredible things. In reality, the industrial revolution started many years before the monster machines were even dreamed of - and it started with some of the smallest tools and parts ever made. In the late 17th century, clockmakers, builders of scientific equipment, and firearm manufactures required precision tools to help improve their products. From these small beginnings, the greatest advancements in human history were about to spring. In this book, kids will wonder at the first screws and steam engines. They will gaze in awe at the first locomotives riding on the first iron rails, and watch in amazement at the speed of 1700s textile machinery. But most of all, they will learn about how the power of inventors, creators, builders, and businessmen changed the world forever! This 32-page book is reproducible and educational. A partial list of the Table of Contents include: A Timeline of Events From Muscles to Machines! The Industrial Revolution In the Beginning Textile Revolution Full Steam Ahead! On the Water Machines that Make Things Steel and Skyscrapers Working Children Workers Unite! Patent Pending Additional Resources Glossary And More! This fun-fill activity book includes: Label Car Parts Build a Skyscraper Use Immigration Chart to Answer Questions Create the Front Page of a Newspaper Make a Protest Sign Connect the Dots Chronological Order Decipher the Code Answer the Questions Matching Word Search Maze And Much More!
