In this activity, students will participate in a simulation of the “domino effect” that occurred prior to the onset of the Great Depression. It should be read much like a script and will work to demonstrate how businesses failed, the stock market crashed, and people lost their life savings.
Included in this resource:
- Guiding Questions and instructions
- A script
- A copy of the widely used “hobo code”
- Stock certificates, and IOU credit for use at the store.
- Exit Slip
