Activity Overview


After understanding the factors that led to the 1920s economic boom, students will start to see the reasons the economy crashed. They will further this observation by outlining the causes and effects of the Great Depression. A T-Chart is a great way to organize this information, since it provides students with a side-by side comparison of the major economic downfall and the resulting effects. In this activity, students will connect these events, including visuals for additional comprehension.

Students should select several major causes of the Great Depression, including but not limited to:

  • Stock Market Crash of 1929
  • Cuts in Production
  • Mass Consumerism
  • Bank Failures
  • Consumer Borrowing
  • Rise of Unemployment.

Extended Activity

Have students identify the causes and effects of the “Great Recession” of 2008. Students should examine what caused this economic recession, including unemployment, corporate bailouts, toxic financial assets, and a damaged stock market. Connections to today’s economy are imperative and readily apparent when looking at and learning from the Great Depression.
