The high school resource students have been working hard on their research projects dealing with the European Industrial Revolution. Each student picked one invention or person of importance during that exciting time in history. We learned all about the Spinning Jenny, the Flying Shuttle, the steam engine, and Samuel Slater, who was an industrial spy. It was so interesting to learn how this period in history changed the lives of the people who lived during the 17th and 18th centuries. We also discovered just how much it helped to build the economies of so many countries of Europe.
