Product Description
Teacher Directions:
This project was intended as a creative, cooperative way to learn about The Great Depression. You could add more categories for students to research, as well as alter this assignment to be more or less complex.

After placing students in groups of 3, they created posters using the attached directions. Because there were 3 different topics, each group was in charge of collecting enough solid information to teach their peers about either migrant farm workers, the economy, or the Dust Bowl. My students were very invested in these posters!
Day one was research and development of the poster. On day two, slow groups wrapped up and speedy groups hung posters in the hallway. On day three, we took a silent field trip into the hallway to take notes. Students drew boxes in their Interactive Notebooks – one for each category. They had to, using their peer's posters, write down notes on the three most important things they found for each category. After our silent field trip, we returned to class and shared what we found important. My high schoolers LOVED this activity.

NOTE: For these projects, my students completed all the work in class. It took about 2 days, plus a portion of day 3 to take notes on the information each group found.
