Students respond really well to humor, and you'll see some in this fun question set about the plight of the American farmer in the 1920s and 1930s. A major focus is the Dust Bowl, but the questions also cover how WWI contributed to farmers overproducing and borrowing too much money, all of which contributed to economic woes even before the Dust Bowl hit.
39 true/false and multiple choice questions in all -- a lot of them amusing so that students will be engaged, enthusiastic, and learn a lot!
