Great Depression in Music and Video

Today’s wordless or near wordless offering is a video regarding the Great Depression from the Thomas Brothers. If you aren’t sure who the Thomas Brothers are check out their website here and follow this link to another video clip showing how they mix history, video, and song to entertain and teach with.

Even if you can’t get the Thomas Brothers in front of students these clips are interesting enough to add to a lesson or unit of study.

Be sure to check out the video here that clearly shows how they work their magic with all age groups.

You can locate other bloggers participating in Wordless Wednesday here.

That's wonderful story telling, ain't it?

I am struck that they used photos not generally overused for this stuff -- none of the cliche photos are in that bunch.

Wow. Just wow.

Got a lesson plan segment for that film?
