In Social Sciences, the Grade 8s are learning about the Industrial Revolution. And what an eye-opener it has been to find out how simple machines such as the Spinning-Jenny and Steam Engine helped to catapult society from an agricultural lifestyle into a world with cities and technologies beyond our wildest dreams.

In class, they were tasked to think of any invention that inspires them which they believe changed the world for good or for bad. This week they needed to bring their devices to school to research and construct a poster. Have a look at some of their progress. Later this month they will be presenting their invention to the class.
