Chapter 9 Section 1 The Beginnings of Industrialization

3 Industrial Revolution Begins in Britain

Why the Industrial Revolution Began in England Large population Natural resources that were required for industrialization Water power, iron ore, rivers, and harbors Economy and banking system Political stability Britain had all of the _________ of __________ including land, labor, and capital.

5 Inventions Spur Industrialization
Changes in the Textile Industry Invention of the flying shuttle for weavers leads to the invention of the spinning jenny for spinners Water power (water frame) used to drive spinning wheels Spinning mule makes stronger, finer thread Power loom speeds up weaving Why did production move to factories? Eli Whitney invents the cotton gin, purpose?

6 It’s important to know that….
“Spinning” is the process of creating yarn from various raw fiber materials like cotton. “Weaving” is a way to make fabric in which two sets of yarn or thread are brought together to form fabric or cloth.



9 Invented by John Kay in 1733. In previous looms, the shuttle was
thrown, or passed through the threads by hand, and wide fabrics required two weavers seated side by side passing the shuttle between them. Kay mounted his shuttle on wheels in a track and used paddles to shoot the shuttle from side to side when the weaver jerked a cord. Using the flying shuttle, one weaver could weave fabrics of any width more quickly than two could before. (weaving)

10 Hand powered spinning jenny.

11 The water frame was an improvement on the spinning jenny, produces stronger
thread more efficiently. (spinning)

12 The spinning mule makes high quality thread
The spinning mule makes high quality thread. A single person could work 1,000 spindles simultaneously. (spinning)

13 The power loom. (weaving)
