Eleanor Roosevelt: Economics, Discovery and Daily Life

Learners examine the causes and effects of the Great Depression and the role of Eleanor Roosevelt during this time. They take an inventory of their home for wants and needs, and conduct Internet research on The Great Depression. Students convert prices of items using an inflation calculator, and create a personal budget that they would need to live by if they lived during The Great Depression.

Lesson Planet has really helped me with not going "bonkers" over trying to find innovative and fun activities to incorporate into my daily lessons. Kids, even highschoolers whom I teach, don't want to have lectures all the way through each class period, so having activities that are fun can make students more involved which helps them learn the concept of whatever topic I'm teaching.
