Today, when we have came into the class, the checked exams were over the tables. Paqui has given until 8:25 to see the exams. The average mark has been good, only two or three classmates haven't passed the exam. Gema was very angry with her mark, because she studied a lot and she has had an argument with Paqui. Paqui has said that we only memorize the information "to puke" it in the exam. She has explained us the answers from the exam. Then she has reviewed the points we saw in the last class, the Norfolk four-field system of crop rotation, mechanization and the selective breeding.
Robert Bakewell was the first to breed only animals with certain qualities. He elaborated genealogical records of his valuable animals and maintained his stock carefully. He had a great success with sheep.
The photography above shows a sheep created by Bakewell crossing the best species of sheep to obtain a lot of whool.
Then we have studied the:
Development of the 1st Industrial Revolution.
The causes for the development were that the population increased due to the improvements in medicine, hygiene and agriculture. This population demanded all type of products.
Producers started trying to produce more inventing and innovating, with a new way of organizing work: factory system (concentration of workers and ,machines in big factories and division of work), and with new energy sources like hydraulic power and mineral coal.
Then, the bell has rung.
