Who Wants to be a Cotton Millionaire

Studying the Industrial Revolution? Take your kids to the computer lab and launch this site and have them play this game. It allows them to evaluate the different factors that entrepreneurs had to make if they wanted to make money in the new cotton industry. It's a BBC site, of course and is terrific and is a fantastic introduction to the textile revolution. My thanks to my colleague, Jeff Feinstein, for sending me the link.
