The Industrial Revolution was all about changing everyday life to be easier and more technological. The Industrial Revolution started in the late 1700’s and at that time everything was mainly done by hand which was a long and hard process. Some of the first changes were machines like the water wheel, cotton gin, carding machine, etc. As time went on there were more job opportunities, mills, machines, and technology. The Industrial Revolution was great for the wealthy but the lower class did not change much with them not being able to afford the new and advanced technology. Even though the industrial revolution did cause many problems the overall outcome was a great change for our everyday life.
