Town Through Time – Industrial Revolution Gr7

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.

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.

Renaissance Knock Out! Grade 7

Today you are going to prepare for a little game that we will play next class.

Each of you will be assigned an individual from the Renaissance to do a little research on (using Encyclopedia Britannica to start, of course!)

You need to produce 2 google slides on THIS shared Slide presentation.

  1. Who your person was
  2. Why THEY were the most important person in the Renaissance.

Next class, we will present the slides and one-by-one you will decide who is more powerful, and who should be ‘knocked-out’!

Here is the list of people, the instructions again AND a list of questions to get your research started.

Good luck! and may the best Renaissance Man win! (that’s a joke – I’ll explain it later!)
