The Industrial Revolution for Kids introduces young readers to the Industrial Revolution in a qrevolutionaryq way: through the usual people, places, and inventions of the time: the incredibly wealthy Rockefellers and Carnegies, dirty and dangerous factories, new forms of transportation and communication, but also through the eyes of everyday workers, kids, sports figures, and social activists whose names never appeared in history books. Readers learn about new machines that impacted American lifea€”through the people who invented them and the people who built and operated thema€”and new forms of transportation that revolutionized societya€”through the people who designed them as well as the people who built and used them. Hannah Montague, who revolutionized the clothing industry with her highly popular detachable collars and cuffs, and Clementine Lamadrid, who either helped save starving New Yorkers or scammed the public into contributing to her One-Cent Coffee Stands, help tell the human stories of the Industrial Revolution. Twenty-one engaging and fun crosscurricular activities bring the times and technologies to life. Kids will make an assembly line sandwich, analyze the interchangeable parts of a common household fixture, weave a placemat, tell a story through photographs, and much more. Resources include books to read, places to visit, and websites to explore.
