- My children find it fascinating to learn when things they use everyday were invented. Since so many inventions came about during the industrial revolution I would suggest making a timeline showing some of the most used items in your everyday life that are a direct result of the industrial revolution. Some examples………. blue jeans, basketball, electricity, telephone, batteries, peanut butter, cash register, coca-cola, cotton candy, escalators, hot dogs, light bulbs, paper clips, potato chips, typewritter, vacuum cleaner, zippers, elevator brakes, metal cans for food and the can opener, dishwasher, cocoa powder , sewing machine, lawn mower, rubber band, safety pin, revolving doors. I would jazz up the timeline with clip art of some of the earliest of these items and compare them with what we have today.
Naturally there are lots of other inventions that could be put on there but these are a few that even young children notice in their everyday lives and are things they can see and touch so they should be interested enough to maybe sit through some of the inventions that don’t touch their everyday lives.
