Industrial Revolution for Kids Great book for getting upper elementary kids excited about the Industrial Revolution. Contains supplemental activities and interesting tidbits that you won't find in a textbook.
Marvelous Mattie: How Margaret E. Knight Became an Inventor This book combines science and social studies. A terrific true story of how a girl during the Industrial Revolution came to be known as the "The Lady Edison". I would like to use this book with 4th or 5th graders during a unit on machines or the Industrial Revolution or BOTH!
