Great Depression Questions: How People Lived
provides teachers with 46 true/false and multiple choice questions about life in the United States during the 1930s.
You could use these as a "teaser" or interest-generator when you first begin your study of the Great Depression, or use them after presenting the material to see how many of the basics your students have grasped. They are great discussion starters and help students visualize real life problems and issues 1929-1939.
These questions are at the basic level and focus on how the Great Depression affected the ordinary person. They emphasize intriguing facts such as people collecting coal falling from trains in order to heat homes and cook. They also emphasize Hoover's lack of success in dealing with the economic downturn.
