Hello everyone, I'm Maria M.
At the beginning of the class, Paqui has told us how to upload the videos on the internet. Also Paqui has told us to do a new project: it consist to do a story about the industrial revolution, it is very similar to the travel journal we did in the last term.
Then Paqui has explained us the agricultural revolution which is the changes introduced by farmers to produce more.
This revolution happened because population growth created a bigger demand for all kind of products like food or raw materials
The main changes were
-Extension of cultivated lands; many farmers occupied communal lands and enclosed them to increase the land they cultivated.
-Inventions and innovations:
*Norfolk four field system of crop rotation
The consequences of this revolution were;
-More population as a consequence of the increase of production and the improvements in diet.
-Surplus of farmers as a consequence of the mechanization of some nortes. These farmers had to migrate other places in serch of work,
At the end of the class Paqui has told us to do homework about the 1st industrial revolution:
