Learning Objective

Students will learn about the Roaring '20s & Great Depression era.


This item is a comprehensive CURRICULAR UNIT (GOOGLE version included!) about the Roaring '20s & Great Depression that integrates reading and literacy. There are 6 complete lessons included in this bundle PLUS supplemental activities. This unit includes about 6 weeks of materials. I will be adding an audio of each passage soon!

THIS UNIT CAN BE USED AS A STAND ALONE CURRICULUM. This can be used as homeschool curriculum, too.

This unit offers a savings of over 40% versus buying the resources individually.

The 6 lessons included in this curriculum unit are:

Post WW1 Issues

Economic Boom of the 1920s

Culture of the '20s & '30s

Causes of the Great Depression

Life During the Great Depression

The New Deal

If you have purchased any of the above No Prep lessons, you have the above lessons, but you do NOT have the supplemental activities.

Limited on copies or paper? Every component of this lesson is ready-to-go on GOOGLE slides, so you can easily assign to your students! The quizzes, unit test, and modified test are also available on GOOGLE Forms, and I include explicit directions on how to assign and tweak (if desired) for your students. The quizzes, unit test, & modified unit test are also self-grading!

This unit includes:

• 6 PowerPoint presentations that can be used to facilitate discussion or have students take notes

• 6 slotted notes pages so students can focus on recording the important information from the PowerPoint presentations (which includes carefully curated videos & links that will enrich the lessons) Editable slotted notes included!

• 6 informational reading passages about the 1920s & 1930s (There are TWO versions of the reading passage included. One is the "paper saver" version for when you have to limit your copies. The other is the "note-taking" version that has enough space for annotating and taking notes. This version also includes bolded headers for the different sections!)

• 24 activities (4 per lesson) (key terms, dates & events, data analysis, significant people, political cartoon, literary works, and a literacy connection) Three of the four activities PER lesson have two levels: a basic recall and an application of knowledge.

• 6 quizzes

• answer keys for the slotted notes, activity pages, and the quizzes

• GOOGLE slides of all components

• 6 GOOGLE Form self-grading quizzes, unit test, & modified unit test



• 6 graphic organizers

73 vocabulary cards

6 primary source analysis

10 interactive notebook foldables


Simulation: Life of a Farmer

• editable study guide with answer key

• editable unit test with answer key

• editable modified test with answer key

• teacher's guide with suggested pacing map

Specific reading skills in this unit are: relationships in a text/cause & effect; unknown words & phrases; citing textual evidence & making inferences; text structure; and central ideas & summary.

You will be easily integrating reading with your social studies content because the 6 graphic organizers focus on one specific reading skill per organizer, AND students will be analyzing primary documents.
