Activity Overview


Understanding the background of the New Deal and the issues it aimed to solve will help students understand how and why the programs were implemented and how it helped the American economy recover. Using a spider map, students will analyze and define the 5 Ws for the New Deal. This activity can serve as both an activity to introduce students to the New Deal and it's programs as well as a summative assessment at the end of the unit.

Students will ask the following questions:

  • WHO created the New Deal?
  • WHAT was the New Deal?
  • WHEN was the New Deal?
  • WHERE did the New Deal affect?
  • WHY was the New Deal created?

Extended Activity

For this extended activity, students should create a spider map that details and represents the 5Ws of the Great Depression. As the Great Depression is seen as the impetus for the New Deal, having students begin with the Great Depression may be a very useful classroom strategy to provide them with a more comprehensive background.
