FC: The Industrial Revolution

1: The Industrial Revolution 1750's-1900's Written By Alicia Walsh Children's Book Published 10.22.12

3: The Industrial Revolution took place in the 1750's to the 1900's. In the Industrial Revolution the parent's didn't have much money so they had their children work in factories so that they could have a bigger salary. The kids started working at the age of 5. They worked six days a week and 12-18 hours a day to make 1$.

4: Most parents didn't care that the factories were too hard on their children. The kids in the factories where getting hurt, and working in a factory starting giving them deformities. They were tired and the factories were just too much on them.

5: In 1880 32.5% of boys were working in the factories. 12.2% of girls were working in factories. The children were allowed to go to public schools but they also had to work in factories.

6: The Revolution had a textile industry, that took place in the 1760's. They invented the Spinning Jenny, Waterframe, Spinning Mule, Flying Shuttle, Hydraulic Power and much more. But they collapsed the cottage industry. Just one machine can do the work of 3,000 people

8: Here are two things that were invented at the time: The Spinning Jenny is a machine that started the Revolution. It increased yarn and thread production.

9: In 1779, Samuel Crompton invented the spinning mule that combined the moving carriage of the spinning jenny with the rollers of the water frame.

10: The Industrial Revolution fundamentally changed the way people lived.People moved to Industrial cities by the millions to work in the new factories.They were crowded into towns and cities that had made little provision for housing or for sanitation.Even though they were becoming more populated than rural areas, cities had not gained political power.

11: There where many harmful work conditions such as: child labor, low wages, faulty ventilation, and dangerous equipment. Which was brought attention by Sadler Repot on factories and Ashley Report on mines. Many members of the parliament became concerned about the children because of the working conditions and because of the hours they had at their age. In 1833 Factory Act and 1842 Mines Act were passed to improve conditions for workers.

12: Capitalism Example: U.S. Economic system where means of production-owned by private individuals Can own your own business, private ownership They value Freedom and Competition Less government involvement | Socialism Example: Sweedon Economic system where means of production are owned MOSTLY by the government Own your own business but mainly by the gov. Property here is own by the gov. and the people They value Competition but mostly equality | Communism Example: Cuba, North Korea Economic System where means of production controlled entirely by the government CANNOT own your own businessThey value Equality and Complete gov. involvement Everyone gets the same stuff and paid the same Government owns all property
