Product Description
19 clues and terms to help students better understand FDR's New Deal policies during the phase historians call the "Second New Deal," which refers to legislation enacted during 1935 and 1936. Widely regarded as the second phase of the New Deal, this period ushered in many of the government programs and policies we take for granted today, including social security and unemployment insurance!

In my own classes, I see the value of making learning fun. That’s why I try my best to develop activities and puzzles that students find engaging, even as they make a teacher’s professional life just a little bit easier!

Ways to Use these 1930s Trends Puzzle Worksheets

The information included on these puzzles matches what is typically presented in a high school history textbook, but of course if students have internet-capable devices – even their own smart phones, if that works per your school’s policies – they can always augment the textbook with a spot of online research.

These American history puzzles work great for:

• Reviewing key concepts after the text has been read and discussed
• Homework assignments
• Sub plans – even months after the Postwar Era has been taught, you can use these for emergency substitute lesson plans!
