Exploring the Indust. Revolution with Mr. Hopson

More from World History and The Industrial Revolution
This lesson is to help students grasp the harsh reality of life in an industrial factory. First, they made products (toy dogs) individually on their own terms. Next, they made that same product on an assembly line with a very........VERY demanding boss. This shows students how industrial factories increased the quantity of products, but also lowered the quality of that good.
