This activity is meant to be completed at the start of a Great Depression Inquiry unit. Students will have had a BRIEF introduction to the Depression but will use this gallery walk to create more questions for an inquiry project. First, I use a quick depression simulation
then I show a short video clip that discusses the causes of the Depression.
You don't have to use this product in conjunction with an inquiry project however. You can use it as an anticipation activity.
The inquiry project will be a museum exhibit that students will complete in small groups.You can buy these three products as a bundle and save $3!
The Gallery Walk includes primary source documents that are sourced as well as a note sheet for students to use to keep track of their questions. The topics include:
* The Bonus Army
* Impact on Families
* The Dust Bowl
* Relief Efforts
* Hoover's Response
* The Banks
* Migrant Workers
