"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Lesson 1

LO: To find out how transport changed during the Industrial Revolution.


Can you imagine what life would be like without aeroplanes? Cars? Trains? In the early 18th century, none of these existed.


How did people travel?


Today you are going to do some research all about the industrial revolution and find out why we had to change the existing modes of transport as they weren't good enough! 


First you need to read through the information - you might need someone to help you with this as there is quite a lot! There are then 3 different tasks to do - 1a, 1b or 1c. You only have to choose ONE to complete unless you want to do more than one! There are then some questions at the end (in blue) choose 5 and have a go at answering them - I have included the answers (in orange) but try to have a go on your own first!
