    I'll be glad to comment on your answers.

    Ford was not satisfied because the Model T was very different from his previous models.
    Working in the factory would be dangerous because the fumes from the car creation process can be toxic.
    He came up with the assembly line.
    Others followed Henry's lead because the idea led to faster and bigger productions.
    The U.S. changed because of the mass production of cars by inspiring other industries to use the assembly line idea.
    I am not sure these answers are correct, so anyone feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

    They look good to me. I'd add to #3 that Ford paid his workers more than they would be paid in other factories. He wanted to make sure his workers could afford to buy the cars they made.

    Thanks Ms. Sue and Mr. J!
