I developed this research activity because many of my students were not familiar with the 1930’s era, and I wanted them to have a grasp on the background of this novel before we began reading.
In this activity, students research eight aspects of living during the Great Depression/ 1930's. This activity can be assigned as an individual assignment or group assignment. I have included resources for both! After researching, students will create a newspaper about the 1930's to present to the class.
What is included:
Individual Student Assignment Sheet
Research Pages (2)
Newspaper Template (3)
Group Members Assignment Sheet
Research Pages (one for each topic to be covered)
