All our videos teach through the power of story to make the history relevant and memorable. In this video-lesson, students learn the amazing story of the stock market crash in 1929 and how it led to the Great Depression amidst bank failures and rising unemployment. Students learn the story behind the stock crash, buying on margin, wild speculation and how underlying problems of the 1920s economy like overproduction, consumer debt, the gap between the rich and the poor all were causes of the Great Depression. ✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
