I created this Web Quest about the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression to accompany Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse. This can be used independently of the novel as well, as this is a prereading research activity that doesn't yet work with the novel. There could be much more research done in terms of the Great Depression, but I mainly focused on how the two connected most.
Included in the .zip file editable .doc versions of the WebSearch and the KEY.
