Week Two: A Period of Change (1870-1950)

Activity 2: Offering a Helping Hand
During this period, people struggled to find work both here at home and overseas. It was a really tough time for people living in the Great Plains of the United States because they were hit with a huge drought that lasted for most of the decade. Many crops were damaged and farmers were not able to make enough money to feed their families.

Imagine that you were alive in the 1930s. What could you have done to help these families? On your blog, list three different ways that you could raise funds for families to help them buy food and clothing. Be as creative as you can with your fundraising ideas!

1.  Selling good Crops and Corn and others Plants on the field.

2.Selling Clothes 

3. Selling  Cars

    Cadence here from the Summer Learning Journey team!! Thanks for sharing some great ideas about fundraising :)

    I’m curious, with your fundraising ideas, would you be making these clothes yourself? From the photos you’ve included, they look like very elegant and trendy designs. :)

    Have you had to fundraise for something before? Maybe a camp or trip at school?
    I remember when I was at Intermediate, we had to raise as much money as we could to go on camp. We sold Cadbury chocolate bars and there was a prize for the student who sold the most!

    I look forward to reading more of your posts!

    Cadence :)
