Activity Overview


FDR'S New Deal initiatives were a major turning point in the economy during the Great Depression. The New Deal was comprised of several different initiatives to help tackle the many different problems that existed during the Great Depression, from unemployment to the failure of banks. To introduce these programs, have students outline the major New Deal initiatives using a spider map. This will give students a solid foundation to further explore how each program aimed to solve the most prevalent problems of the Great Depression.

Extended Activity

Have students create a spider map to detail the initiatives taken by President Barack Obama in 2008 to solve the recession crisis. Students should state how the president attempted to solve many of the same issues that existed during the Great Depression, including unemployment and the revitalization of businesses. This will help connect the politics of the 1930s with that of the 2000s.
