OUT OF THE DUST BOWL

robyngloyd, rebeccajonesdanolsen, amber pool, mike sycz


Summary

This unit, Out of the Dust: Overcoming hardships, will focus on the multiple ways communities work through hardships, using the experiences of the Oklahoma dust bowl survivors as a reference point and example. Created for fifth grade students, this unit will allow students to explore the ways communities face hardships, how they can overcome them, and the examples they find in their own communities.

By integrating Math, Social Studies, Science, Language Arts, and Art, the students will learn about ways people experience and overcome hardships by exploring reading accounts of dust bowl survivors (fiction and nonfiction), exploring the ways humans impact their environments and vice versa, exploring the ways hardships impact creative ability and vice versa, and exploring the ways in which the people in a community help one another in the midst of hardships.

Our unit will begin by exploring the theme of overcoming hardships by learning about the Oklahoma dust bowl and its survivors, but this will only be the starting place for the exploration of ways people survive difficulties in their own communities.

Created for fifth grade students, this unit will allow students to explore the ways communities face hardships, how they can overcome them, and the examples they find in their own communities.

The Language Arts component of this ITU will explore the ways communities

overcome hardships by reading the story, Out of the Dust, a fictional account of one

family's struggles and triumphs and those of their community of farmers in

Oklahoma during the dust bowl. Students will complete a KWL chart, examining what

they already know about the dust bowl, what they want to know, and culminating in

what they learned. They will compare and contrast the experiences of the characters in

the story with those struggles in their own community. They will learn note taking skills

as they keep a story journal to use throughout the unit. They will learn how to effectively

use an essay map and will write a five paragraph essay describing a generous act from the

story. As a culminating activity, the students will chose events from the story to present

in a newspaper format, which will be presented at the class parent's night.

The visual arts component of this interdisciplinary thematic unit will focus on the

students’ understanding and application of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art.

Students will use a variety of media to explore the lifestyles of those living during the Great

Depression. They will then use their new found knowledge to create their collage artwork.

The first week, students will take excerpts from the book Out of the Dust, by Karen Hess. They

will use the excerpts to create a two-dimensional collage poster advertising one of two events

that occur in the story. Students will also be paired up for their diorama home project. The

diorama will depict the lifestyle of someone living during the Great Depression. The second

week, students will watch a film called Riding the Rails. It is a documentary about teenagers

who were forced to survive on their own by traveling on trains to get from one destination to

the next. After the documentary, the students will be introduced to hobo signs. Hobo signs

were a form of communication that hobos used during the Great Depression to give

information and warnings to fellow travelers. The students will study hobo signs and be given

a test on them. During the last week of the unit, the students will create their own hobo sign that

could be useful for a traveler today. They will also bring in their completed dioramas and share

them with the class. All the students’ artwork will be on display during the culminating parents

night.

Created for fifth grade students, this unit will allow students to explore the ways communities face hardships, how they can overcome them, and the examples they find in their own communities.

The Social Studies component of this interdisciplinary unit will examine how

Americans overcame hardships during the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl in

1930s America. Students will first examine the economic factors leading up to the

market crash of 1929 and collapse of the banking system. Then, the unit will cover the

social effects and hardship associated with the Great Depression including

unemployment, inflation, foreclosures, breadlines, and the welfare system. The unit

will also cover the Dust Bowl in the Midwest with a lesson on modern migration and

its effects on the social make-up of a region including overpopulation, under

population, and discrimination. Finally, the lesson will conclude with an

examination of the New Deal policies and how the United States eventually pulled

itself out of the Great Depression.

Created for fifth grade students, this unit will allow students to explore the ways communities face hardships, how they can overcome them, and the examples they find in their own communities.

The Science component of this interdisciplinary unit will focus on erosion and how ecosystems on earth change through natural occurrences and through human intervention. Students will learn from reading accounts of the Dust Bowl what were the chain of events that led to the catastrophe. Students will conduct experiments to learn what are the causes and effects of erosion. Students will learn about using the scientific method to investigate the question of what caused the Dust Bowl and what can people do to prevent that type of event from happening again.

The Math component of our unit will focus on reading and understanding linear graphs. Students will learn how to understand raw data from the Dust Bowl era (1934) and construct a graph using temperatures from 1934 and 2009. Students will learn how to label axes correctly, plot data points, and connect the data points on graph paper.

The lesson fits into the ITU as part of a greater understanding of the impact these high temperatures have on our environment and communities overall.
