The task is to create TWO maps of a town – one BEFORE the Industrial Revolution, and one AFTER. And write a mini-essay about which you’d rather live in!

HERE is the NEW and IMPROVED Task Sheet

You will also need to share your research document with me HERE.

Here are the TSCs

And HERE is the final IN CLASS essay that needs to be written, printed, and handed in at the END OF CLASS (Tuesday March 28th) along with your maps.

Rivers Geography: Grade 6 I&S

We are going to do something a little different – we’re going to learn a bit from a text and answer some questions.

Please read through the PDF. You can print it out if you want, and when you are done, I would like you to work through the questions on Page 232, and Part 3 on Page 233 (the questions on the Nile).

You can use a googleDoc to write your responses, or paper. It’s up to you.

Gr 7 I&S: Welcome to the Industrial Revolution

Today we are going to start learning about the IR. First task – READ and take notes.

Using the History Channel’s site – read through the IR sections and watch the videos if you want. And take some notes (you can start a google.doc for the unit, or use pen and paper). What are the BIG ideas, the major points, the basics, that you should know? What are the causes and effects of the industrial revolution?

Then, we will share our ideas and watch THIS to see if it summarizes it well.
