Madison's Answers
The Dust Bowl was a series of dust and wind
storms. It took place in the 1930s. The states it affected
were Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma. Life was
affected by farmers not making an income. They became poor, starved,
and left their homes. The Dust Bowl is connected to the Great Depression
because they made no money, had to borrow money. They couldn't pay their
loans so eventually the banks crashed. We have used different soil fertilization
crops; we use fertilizers to keep the soil moist. It could also still happen
again because there could still be a terrible drought and our corrects could
not work. Hoover did not have enough time in office to deal with this
disaster or the people. Most of the Dust Bowl occurred while Roosevelt
was in office. Okies are farm families that moved to California to get
away from the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression that arose
throughout the country were states that had
twice their population and several hundred people living
in shacks.

The Dust Bowl was a huge drought. The farmers and their families were directly affected by it. Life in America was hard for farmers because they lost all of their crops. When the farmers lost their crops they couldn't sell them which then they didn't make money. It could have been prevented. They farmers should have done crop rotation which would help to prevent it. We have done things since then to prevent it from happening again. Herbert Hoover did'nt do anything to help the disaster or the people. Hoovervilles are little shake towns that homeless people during the Great Depression. They were called Hoovervilles because it was a label saying that President Herbert Hoover caused the economic crisis and and the peoples miseries. • When the “Okies” took up all of the available jobs the tension grew between the California people and the Okies.
