The Dust Bowl

Last week we were watching a movie about the great dust bowl in the Oklahoma area in the 1930s. Where we left off, things were still promising and hopeful. You should have your letter done by now – it should be from the perspective of someone who’s moved to the area in the summer of 1929, when things were looking good, but some people had concerns.

You can access the previous section of the movie here (see instructions below about downloading the file first!)

Today, I want you to see how things went terribly wrong. There is another portion of the video for you to watch at this link. Please DOWNLOAD the video to your computer and open the file from your Downloads folder or Desktop or wherever you save it.
