This is a short (5-10 minutes) simulation to be used at the start of a Great Depression unit. It will show students how fast they can lose it all and how the stock market crashing created a domino effect.
In addition to the simulation slides, there is a reflection slide at the end with three questions.
I use this as the start to my Great Depression unit. The next activity I do is a Gallery Walk
to prepare students for our inquiry museum exhibit project. You can buy these three products as a bundle and save $3!
