Transcript of The industrial revolution.

The industrial revolution.
A positive effect of the industrial revolution was that Urbanization was created. Urbanization consists of a city being built and the movement of people to the cities. It increased population and also increased employment and income to families. Another positive effect of the industrial revolution was that the government put financial support towards education. They thought that education was a very important part of getting a job so with this more kids would get a education and soon find a job easier, and it wouldn't consist of them working in a factory.

A negative effect of the industrial revolution was that child labor was created. Yes it did speed up production but it also took away jobs for other people. And kids would receive no education and little breaks.And another negative effect of the industrial revolution is that it created jobs in the coal mines. This was bad because it killed the environment. And it put the workers in danger of drowning and dying from poisonous gas. The dirty air would slowly work away at their lungs. And it had little pay.
