The Great Depression was a very sad and devastating time for people in America. It effected the rich and the poor and there is so much to learn from this time in history.
The Great Depression lasted for over a decade. It was from 1929-1941. It was called the Great Depression because it greatly effected so many people from all walks of life. This is a very sad and intense topic to learn about and can be hard for sensitive children. This makes for a great unit study when you are learning about this time period in history, but it is better suited for older elementary aged children and up.
I have compiled a list of free printables and resources to help you create your own unit study on the Great Depression to use in your homeschool.
Unit Studies and Printables:
US History has an article on the Great Depression, what it was, and how the economy crashed when it was at it’s highest in the roaring 20’s.
The Great Depression Coloring Pages:
The Great Depression Connections Unit Study with tons of printables for lapbooks.
Cooking and Homemaking in the Great Depression – these would be great to read with your teens and could be incorporated into a Home Economics course.
Welcome to Clara’s Kitchen is an amazing resource from a woman who lived through the Great Depression! She lived to be 103 years old and her family put together this website with all of her recipes and information about her.
She had her own youtube channel cooking show called Great Depression Cooking with Clara with cooking videos that would be great to watch with your kids. She is so cute!
Sarah is a wife, daughter of the King and Mama to 4 children (one who is a homeschool graduate)!
