Transcript of Great depression

Major wind erosion occurred on the Great Plains of the United States in the 1830s. The erosion and its crazy outcome are known as the Dust Bowl.
The Great Plains are very dry and windy, and long droughts aren’t usual . By: John Michael, Autumn, Darius and Justin Great depression That's when the stock market crashed and everyone was sad and mad. Some people put all there money in that and didn't have anything to live for and people jump out windows and killed themselves. 1.)What is "Black Tuesday" and why does it mark the beginning of the Great Depression? almost all wars are good for the economy, it creates jobs for people who are not in the war. It also provided work for factories who had to produce gear to use to fight in the war. World War II gave jobs too many people, so it helped end the great depression. http://www.enotes.com/history/discuss/how-did-world-war-ii-affect-american-econmony-32695 2.) Many people believe that WWII marked the end of the Great Depression. How did the war affect the economy? As a formula for economic recovery, the New Deal failed. Many businessmen and financiers did not support the economic measures of the New Deal. With the recession of 1937, many business leaders and politicians claimed that FDR's policies were a failure and the attempt to maintain prosperity during peacetime was not successful at all.

Franklin D Roosevelt, one of the arguably greatest presidents we have had. He came in during the great depression and created countless programs that jumpstarted our economy and job growth, he was there for us in world war II and died just before Japan was bombed by the Atomic Bombs 3. What president was inaugurated in 1933? What were some of the changes made by this administration? 5. What was the Dust Bowl? 6. How did the Dust Bowl affect the Southern Plains? 7. What affect did the Dust Bowl have on agriculture? How would this affect farmers and their employers? 8. Given what you learned about the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl, make a prediction about what you think the setting of To Kill A Mockingbird will look like. What will the houses look like? What will the characters be wearing? How will the characters act towards each other? How will Scout's classmates act toward Scout knowing that her father is a lawyer? The End thanks for watching There was no water, so the plants could not grow without water. Since the farmers did not have crops to sell, they did not have any money for themselves, their families, or their employees. I think the setting of this story will take place in a poor city where food is hard to find. The houses would be small, in poor shape, and not very secure. The characters would wear torn clothes with stains in them and they would not have very many pairs of clothing. I think they might be nice because most poor people are nice. I think Scout’s classmates will be very nice to him so they can get benefits from being his “friend”. Thousands of people were forced to leave their homes because of the Dust Bowl. 89 million acres of land were severely damaged or destroyed.
