PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the entire unit covering the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl from Reading Through History. An enormous summer project, several months was spent researching and composing 40 lessons to cover the major events, figures, and policies of the era. For each lesson there is a one or two page reading activity followed by reading comprehension questions, guided reading activities, vocabulary activities, student summaries, and a student response essay question. The package includes 162 pages of student activities.
