What was the Industrial Revolution?

The Industrial Revolution was a time period in which people started using machines instead of animals. A lot of people came up with new inventions. Some people were forced to work in factories with horrible working conditions and people would get treated with major disrespect. The Industrial Revolution started in Great Britain or Europe.

What were the working conditions like in the factories during the Industrial Revolution?

The working conditions in the factories were so bad that sometimes they were dangerous. In many rooms, the air has particles of dust and it is dangerous if you breathe too much of the air in. Also some of the littler kids get sprayed with water so they are constantly cold and wet.
