The Great Depression Simulation is for fifth grade students learning about the Great Depression and want to experience a small part in real life.
Students will go through a real life set up of three items from the Great Depression; hoovervilles (shantytowns), soup kitchens, and walking the sidewalks seeking jobs. Students will complete each station and experience history today! This packet includes teacher instructions, all the paperwork needed for the project, and student activity instructions. It tells you everything you need and exactly what to do! You can do this with just your class or your whole grade level. Let students experience history, today.
