Industrial Revolution from Muscles to Machines!
The words industrial revolution often make us think of greasy, sooty men working on enormous machines making incredible things. In reality, the industrial revolution started many years before the monster machines were even dreamed of - and it started with some of the smallest tools and parts ever made. In the late 17th century, clockmakers, builders of scientific equipment, and firearm manufactures required precision tools to help improve their products. From these small beginnings, the greatest advancements in human history were about to spring. In this book, kids will wonder at the first screws and steam engines. They will gaze in awe at the first locomotives riding on the first iron rails, and watch in amazement at the speed of 1700s textile machinery. But most of all, they will learn about how the power of inventors, creators, builders, and businessmen changed the world forever! This 32-page book is reproducible and educational.
