I show students the images of the Migrant Mother in the order that I have them. Each time the image zooms out revealing more of what it was like for the people in the image and also reveals more for the students and gets them asking great questions. I use the primary source analysis sheet to get students thinking about the images. I usually do this lesson after learning about what the great depression is. At the end I tell the students what exactly was going on in the pictures. Students are shocked to hear about the dire circumstances that the family is in and that the children would kill birds to eat. There are two choices to wrap up the lesson. Either writing how the images represent the era of the great depression or using the RAFT strategy to write as the role of someone or something in the images.
