I think that the industrial revolution changed the world in many ways. For example the industrial revolution invented mass production. Mass production was a way of making the same exact thing over and over again. There are many other things, like steam engines, ways of communication like the telephone, iron smelting, inventing many ways of energy to power things, etc. With out these things the world would not be the same as today. We could not talk to each other. We would not be able to go places far away from home, etc. A big difference was that factories were invented. People worked at factories to get a stable job, or to feed their family. People started to wake up with clocks and have schedules instead of waking up with the sun and working in farms. There are also some bad thing that came with the industrial revolution. The people that were against factories and the fact that new things were changing, some people started to riot and kill others. There were so many factories being made that the sky and oceans started to become polluted. But although there are many pros and cons about the industrial revolution, I think the the industrial revolution was a very important thing that changed the world and made the world right now what it is.
