Description

Students read about when Dorothea Lange famously photographed the Migrant Mother during the Great Depression and answer 7 questions of varying degrees of difficulty. This would be great for a sub or a short Women's History Month Activity. An answer key is included where appropriate.

Sample questions include:

--How do you think this photograph instigated direct government relief to the Migrant Mother’s agricultural camp?

--What type of instinct might Lange have been feeling/referring to?

--Decide whether Dorothea Lange or the Migrant mother should be showcased as the “Woman of the Day” for Women’s History Month and explain why.
