Economic Crisis: Then and Now

Child in Circleville

Project Overview

Think about all the things you love in life. Think about all the needs and wants you have met everyday: food, clothing, shelter, cell phone, ipod, computer, and video games. Imagine one day all of that is taken away from you and your family. What would life be like? People, like you, have experienced this throughout time, especially during The Great Depression and even today. Experience this first hand by looking at primary sources such as photographs, an interview, and a slide show.
