This Great Depression Clip Art set features 20 PNG images. (10 color and 10 Blackline) that will enhance your Social Studies units.
The Great Depression in the United States was triggered by the Wall Street Stock Market Crash of October,1929 and lasted through the following decade until 1941. It marked the beginning of mass unemployment, low income and profits, failed farms, bank closures, and an overall downturn in economic opportunities. As people lost their jobs and, in some cases, their homes, they resorted to living in tent-like dwellings and selling apples on street corners while looking for any means of steady employment. As the Great Depression lingered through the 1930s, President Franklin Roosevelt and his administration developed programs such as the WPA (Works Projects Administration) to put people to work by building public parks, roads, bridges, and buildings throughout the United States.
Included in this set are: an images of President Roosevelt, and old Model T car pack with personal belongings; a failed bank; a makeshift tent-home; a failed farmhouse; a WPA symbol; man selling apples; a line of men waiting for a job application; a single man with sign begging for work, and a newspaper front page from October of 1929.
The set will download as a zip file which is easy peasy to open! You'll then see your individual images and will be good to go!
