3. Industrial Revolution

3.2 Did Everyone Benefit?


Lesson description

This lesson complements the previous lesson well, by taking a closer look at the social impacts of a radically industrialising Britain. The Industrial Revolution impacted everyone in society, but perhaps not every social class felt as many benefits as others.

This lesson contains:

  • An introduction to the class structure of an industrialised Victorian Britain, including the wealthy upper class, the emerging middle class, and the struggling working class.
  • An exploration of the different impacts that the developments and inventions of the Industrial Revolution had on Britain’s social classes.
  • A creative analysis of the realities of the Industrial Revolution, looking at how it effected the everyday lives of workers, and who benefited the most.
