  • And now for a mini-project!

    #1 Find pictures of the following things online: 

          A Spinning Jenny

          A Mechanical Reaper

          A Steam Engine

          A Steam boat

          A Steam locomotive

          A Telegraph.

    #2 Copy the pictures and paste them into Powerpoint slides to create a presentation called: "Inventions of the Industrial revolution".

    #3 Make one slide per invention and on each slide explain

          *What each invention does

          *Who invented it

          *When it was invented. 

    #4 For each slide describe how the invention changed the way people live.

    #5 Save your presentation when you are done.  They will be collected tomorrow.
