Activity Overview


As students study the events that put the Great Depression into motion and led to the New Deal programs, it's helpful to piece everything together in a visual timeline so they can see the sequence of events. Using a timeline layout, students will identify and describe the major events that led to and occurred during the New Deal. Students should research the numerous economic aspects that led to the Great Depression and include the numerous strategies and programs that the Federal Government undertook to alleviate the harsh struggles faced during the Depression.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options, and update the instructions accordingly.
