Today we are going to learn more about The Great Depression, just as the author did when he was researching it for the book.
Before we read about The Great Depression let’s see what we think we already know about it.
Create a T-chart in our interactive notebooks. Turn to the next blank age in your interactive notebook to create this chart.
On the left side of the chart think of all the information you think you already know about The Great Depression. The information you write down can be from things you already read, TV programs, or anything that is already in your brain. You don’t have to write your ideas in complete sentences. Simply use bullet points to hot your ideas on your chart.
We are going to watch a video and read a piece of informational text about The Great Depression.
First watch the video. After watching the video, add more information to our T-chart.
