Your students will love this scavenger hunt activity - locating and collecting items in a shoe box with a connection to the Great Depression (such as a Monopoly game token or a piece of cardboard)! Once gathered, students will research to determine what that connection is or why the object is significant to the time period. A very fun, hands-on learning lab!
