Storyboard Text

  • What caused the Dust Bowl?
  • Today, class, we will be talking about the Dust bowl and its main causes!
  • Drought Wind Overuse of land Destruction from plowing
  • One reason for the dust ball was the fact that it was just too windy and this caused wind erosion.
  • Another reason was that most farmers on the plains plowed their fields right after the previous harvest, leaving the soil open for months until it was time to plant again.
  • Drought was a major cause of the dust bowl because many farmers failed to apply dry land farming methods
  • Another reason was the over use of farm land during the drought.
  • This series of events might not seem like a big deal, but they're what caused a long period of dust storms in the 1930's.
