Day 3: The Great Depression (The 1930s)

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?

On your blog, please tell us what you do when you want to relax or de-stress. Do you read a favourite book, watch a favourite television show or talk to someone special?  What are your tips for dealing with stress?

When i'm stress i watch movies and funny videos to keep me calm or i just play with a fidget spinner but most of the time when i'm trying to deal with my stress i just play with alot of slime.

my tips for dealing with stress i think when you are stress try and stay calm and think positive for example think of what you mostly love doing like playing outside, going to the park or playing with slime Just do what you love doing and that might help.

  1. Hey Hilary, I really enjoyed reading your post about how you relax yourself when you are feeling stressed out! You have shared some interesting ideas that I might have to try, I just need to go buy a fidget spinner!

    Your second idea is really valuable. It helps a lot to focus on the good things in life and think positively. Going outside is a great idea because the sun naturally makes you feel better.

    Terrific ideas! Keep up the good work.
