HomeworkSpot > The Industrial Revolution



The Industrial Revolution

Throughout history, there have been certain time periods where advancements in technology have been so great that we characterize them as industrial revolutions.

However, the term Industrial Revolution has come to refer to the time from 1733 on that transferred Great Britain and eventually the United States and many European countries from rural villages into towns increasingly engaged in manufacturing and production. From Eli Whitney and the cotton gin to Henry Ford and his Model Ts, these sites trace the history of the Industrial Revolution and key innovators that helped it along.

  • Kid Info

  • IRWeb: The Industrial Revolution
    Thinkquest student site with a summary of the revolution and additional information about specific individuals and their inventions. It also includes fun games like the Industrial Revolution Word Jumble and a quiz to test your IR knowledge.

  • The American Experience: Technology in 1900
