Have men gone through just the industrial revolution?
Do men still use steam engines today? So, do you think men went through other industrial revolution?
What could those be?
LI: To learn about the other “Industrial Revolutions”
so that I can learn about the impact of men’s development in history.
If you are at home, please watch the following video that will help you to understand the evolution of the men’s development on the planet:
