In Conclusion...
I think we should have learned about the dust bowl in our Social Studies Class. All the primary sources show the devastation of this time in history. Living during the Dust storm was a constant battle and many lives were lost.The dust bowl was a very important time in not only Kansas history, but American history. If we were to have another dust bowl in Kansas, people should be informed on how to face it. Another dust bowl could occur anytime so if we learned about it in social studies, we would be prepared if it happens again in the future. Overall it was a major time in history and should be remembered for a long time
