  • Be able to identify factors that contributed to industrial growth.
  • Be able to identify important inventors and explain how their inventions contributed to the industrial revolution.
  • Be able to analyze how those inventions influence their everyday life.
starting point
Starting point
  • Starts in England moves across Europe
  • Gets to America a little slower
    • A new nation becomes a leader
the new american dream

how the nation develops
How the Nation Develops
  • Development of factory system of production
  • Mass production of goods
  • Investments in new technologies
  • Increased diversity of goods produced
necessity the mother of invention
Necessity -the mother of invention

Demands for stronger iron

Improvements in iron smelting and the development of steel

inventions and inventors
Inventions and inventors

One invention inevitably leads to improvements upon it and to more inventions

bessemer process
Bessemer Process
  • A process of producing steel, in which impurities are removed by forcing a blast of air through molten iron
  • Sir Henry Bessemer of England
  • William Kelly developed similar system by Bessemer’s is the one that stuck
  • Mass Production of steel
  • Leads to rail roads, sky scrapers, improvements in construction and manufacturing
  • Steel is the most important metal used over the past 150+ years
interchangeable parts
Interchangeable Parts
  • Identical components that can be substituted for one another
  • Led to mass production
  • Things become less expensive because not hand crafted
elias howe
Elias Howe
  • Inventor of the sewing machine 1846
  • Women no longer have to handmaid clothes

  • Worked on Motion Pictures
  • Pioneered the direction and use of electricity
nikola tesla
Nikola tesla
  • Edison preferred direct current
    • Current couldn’t carry for more than two miles
  • Nicola Tesla believed energy is cyclical
    • Direct current flows continuously in one direction; alternating current changes direction 50 or 60 times per second and can be stepped up to vary high voltage levels, minimizing power loss across great distances
  • Alternating motor
  • Basis for how we direct and use energy today
gottlieb daimler
Gottlieb Daimler
  • German
  • Gasoline engine (1885)
  • Led to the invention of the automobile
  • Henry Ford and the Model T

  • Paper based photographic film (used to be glass)
