During the month of February, eighth graders studied the Great Depression. This unit of study culminated in a cross-curricular simulation on February 23. In each one of the students' core curricular classes, students looked at the Great Depression from a different angle. Many students participated by dressing as historical characters during the Great Depression during the simulation. In addition, each student was assigned a profession and they worked to develop historical empathy by imagining what life might have been like during the Great Depression.
