Industrial Revolution Unit Study

Some or our unit studies are more hands on than others.   This one fall into the “others” category.   We did a great deal of reading about inventors and their inventions that changed our world.  We also spend a great deal of time reading about a few of the wealthy families who came out of that time period.

We added onto our history notebooks using the Inventors Notebooking Pages and also used the Inventors and Inventions Unit from Homeschool Share.

Here is our extensive reading list, as a launching point for your study.
