Great Depression

Our Great Depression lesson plan teaches students about the Great Depression in the United States, which lasted from  1929 to 1939. Students learn about its causes and effects, its lasting impact on policy in the United States, and key vocabulary terms.

Our Great Depression lesson plan introduces students to the Great Depression in the United States between 1929 and 1939. Many students may not be aware of the depression and its impact on the country and its influence on future decisions of the government. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to look at and respond to photos from the Great Depression, using provided questions to guide their responses. Students are also asked to match given descriptions with the correct New Deal program, demonstrating their understanding of the New Deal.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define Great Depression, explain its implications for the United States, identify programs developed to help citizens, and define key vocabulary related to the Great Depression.
