  • Recently our nation suffered from an economic recession and there was some fear we were slipping into another economic depression as unemployment rates rise and banks or other economic institutions fail.  What does this mean for you as a student in elementary school? How are the economic troubles of the 2000's similar to the Great Depression? Through  completing this webquest we as a class will gain a better understanding of the Great Depression and its importance in our lives. Ok, it is now time to get with your time travel agent.   Have a safe journey and see you when you get back!!
