This Industrial Revolution Inventions project will have your students engaged and having fun with cooperative learning about the major inventions and inventors of the Industrial Age.

Included is a directions page on how to present a 1 minute infomercial to the class along with 7 one-page readings on different inventions of the industrial period. In groups students read about their assigned inventor/invention and plan their "infomercial".

As each group presents, other students fill out the included graphic organizer on the 7 inventions and inventors. The readings on inventions include the light bulb, telephone, Bessemer Process, elevator, airplane, assembly line, and Kodak camera. An answer key for this is included along with a rubric for the infomercial presentation.

My students love this project and always come up with some hilarious pitches for these inventions that they remember the rest of the year!

This download also includes a Google Drive digital version of the activity! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, you can use the provided link to bring a digital version of this resource into Google Classroom!
