Guess the Word- Great Depression

This INGENIOUS activity is similar to 4 Pics and a Word or What's the Word. It is a rigorous vocabulary activity that uses pictures to help students learn vocabulary words. Currently this one is for the Great Depression but more units are coming very soon!

I usually play this activity in pairs and start all students at level 1. They have to keep guessing until they get the word correct then they can move on to level 2. They can be laminated so that students don't write on them and they last from year to year.
