Sunburns and Sore Muscles: Working to Save the Farm During the Great Depression

Fifth through eighth graders engage in a lesson in which they study working class people during the Great Depression. They work to develop an understanding of the economic developments in Arkansas during the 1930's. Learners access websites embedded in the lesson which allow them to read first-hand accounts of people from that time, and look at photographs.

I have really appreciated the connecting links to a variety of sources (i.e. National Geographic) and the teacher-tested lessons have been very helpful for me in planning my units. Thanks Lesson Planet!
