Description

Great Depression Dust Bowl Primary Source Reading

A fantastic primary source document to help students better understand the effects of the Dust Bowl on Midwesterners. This vivid letter really makes the reader feel what the writer was going through and brings the Great Depression to life. It is also written at a level middle and high school students can easily understand.

Also included are 8 comprehension questions that engage students' critical thinking skills and reading comprehension. This is an excellent Common Core-aligned homework or classwork activity that should promote a fantastic class discussion on the lives of Americans during the Depression.
