  • The Industrial Revolution

  • The Industrial Revolution – An Overview • Industrial Revolution – when goods began being

    produced more by machines than humans

    • Industry – manufacturing goods in factories

    • Began in England in the late 1700s; spread quickly to other parts of the world

    • England had natural resources like iron &coal

    • To create new factories and machines, countries had to have a great supply of raw materials

    • The Ind. Revolution occurred right after the Agricultural Revolution; Agriculture: farming

    • New tools & ideas led to an increase in crop yield

    • More food=healthier people=population explosion

    • Increase in population meant Europe needed more clothes…leads to factories

  • Agricultural Rev. Effect (read and summarize)

    Almost everything about farming was sped up, improved and or made easier by the Agricultural Revolution. Because of new ways of planting crops (crop rotation) and new tools (new plows, etc.) farmers crops increased dramatically.

    Better nutrition meant healthier mothers, healthier babies, and healthier communities. Life expectancy rose and more and more youths made it into adulthood; in short – it was a population explosion. To put it into perspective, by 1900, Europe, the absolute smallest continent on Earth, had the most people. And those people needed goods, supplies and clothing.



  • 1. When and where did the Ind. Rev. begin?

    2. This means manufacturing goods in factories

    3. What came first, the Agricultural or Industrial Revolution?

    4. These were two very important raw materials during the Industrial Revolution.

    5. The main reason the Industrial Revolution began is because Europe needed more _____ for its citizens.

    6. The I.R. was a time when ______ began producing more goods than humans

  • Beginnings of the Industrial Revolution • The first industry to see a big change was the

    textile industry around 1790

    • Textiles – goods dealing with cloth or clothing

    • Textile factories began using steam engine machines

    • This led to textiles being produced quickly and cheaply in factories

    • More people began to move to cities because factories were there

    • This movement from country to city is urbanization

    • Before this, most people lived on rural farms (farmers produced enough for family)

    • Now, goods were being made for capital gain, not just survival

  • The Assembly Line • Even though we had machines, labor forces

    were still needed in factories • Labor – another word for work; so a “work

    force” • Inventors developed a way to use machines

    and humans together; • Their creation = the assembly line • People were given certain jobs to perform

    over and over again • It was a step by step process; one person

    couldn’t begin until another one finished • Very boring and required little skill • However, this new method of work greatly

    increased production • Assembly lines are still used today; just not

    as common ; machine assembly lines…

    3. Growth of cities – new ideas and the mixing of culture (urbanization); demographics in cities change

    4. Less effort on humans-machines made jobs easier & less tiring

    5. Most products were cheaper to buy (supply and demand b pop)

  • Negatives of the Industrial Revolution 1. Long hours and low pay (anyone could do the job)

    2. Dangerous and poor working conditions

    3. Children often worked in factories for their family

    4. Bad living conditions in cities – small apartments

    5. There were usually no sewer systems or trash collection

    6. More air pollution from factories

    7. Led to more diseases because of this poor sanitation

    **Eventually labor unions were created to protest for better working conditions
