Summer Learning Journey!

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

Day 3: The Great Depression (The 1930s)

Unfortunately, the wealth and success of the 1920s did not continue into the 1930s. Instead, the stock market in America crashed on Tuesday 29 October 1929. When this happened, people lost a lot of money and much of the world sunk into a deep, financial depression. The 1930s is often referred to as the ‘Great Depression.’

Activity 1: Dealing with Stress
In New Zealand, many people lost their jobs during this decade. Experts predict that as much as 30% of the population was unemployed. It was a very stressful time for families.

Sadly, many of us still experience stress in our lives to this day. When I feel stressed I try to go for a walk or pop into my local gym for a quick workout. Exercise makes me feel better. What about you?
I would Agree Going to the Local Gym Get's me Really Pumped Up to Exercise on different things I could work out on .

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!

Idea #1 = Baking Sale Plan

Plan #1 - If you and your Friends are Trying to Make some Money to Help for the Families then you and your Friends can Bake Cakes , Cookies , Cupcakes and all kinds of things and then sell them and if you like you can also sell them on a stand .

Idea #2 Treasure Chest Raffle Sale Plan

Plan #2 - If you have Some Jewellery and you do not need it you can put it in a Treasure Box and sell it but wait you need to make a Raffle so grab a big piece of any paper and draw Squares and go start selling it and if you like you can sell them on a Stand .
Idea #3 Resale Plan
Plan #3 - If you have some Clothing and Toys and some other stuff why not do a Garage Sale and put everything you don't need in the Garage and Start SELLING .

Bonus Activity: Paying it Forward
In the mid-1930s, things began to change for the better in New Zealand. More people were able to find work and receive a steady paycheck. They were still careful, however, with their money and rarely, if ever, bought treats or gifts for one another.

Imagine that you were able to travel back in time to visit a family in the 1930s. What special gifts or treats would you like to bring with you? I would likely bring blocks of Whittaker’s chocolate, bags of Jet Planes and Pineapple Lumps, healthy food snacks, clothing, and games for the children. What about you?

I Would Bring Clothing , Toys , Games ,All Kinds of Block Chocolate's , Healthy Food , Snacks , Shoes .



  1. Hey there Lillyana thanks for completing another set of activities. I have enjoyed reading your tips for dealing with stress. I have definitely tried your idea of eating desserts. I also read books and watch movies to take my mind off of things.

    It's a great idea to go outside, go for a walk or run, kick a ball around at the park and just get some fresh air. You will feel ten times better just from getting out of the house.

    What sort of things make you stressed?

    Thanks, Billy
