Industrial Revolution, the BIG questions
In this session, we will explore the museum galleries, looking for answers to the BIG questions about the Industrial Revolution. What happened in the Industrial Revolution and why did it happen? Who was impacted and where did they live? How did new inventions and machinery make it all possible? And what impact has this had on the world we live in today?
Classes will be provided with worksheets to take around the museum and the tour will involve object handling, original source analysis and a role-playing activity.
By the end of the session, you will: Know more about the Industrial Revolution and how innovations in technology changed Scotland and the wider world. Know more about David Livingstone’s life and how it was shaped by the times he lived in. Be thinking about the connections between the industrial revolution in Britain and the expansion of the British Empire overseas.
