Lesson 4 from the acclaimed teaching pack 'Dial M For Missile: Exploring Themes Around the Cuban Missile Crisis'.
This lesson enables students to learn about civil defence during the Cold War, through examining a range of historic sources, including a documentary film clip. Students can then apply their new knowledge when they create their own civil defence guide, for what to do in a contemporary disaster (nuclear or other). The lesson plan includes differentiation, extension and enrichment suggestions.
The lesson is highly relevant to the curriculum and exam syllabuses of Citizenship, History, English, and Government & Politics, as well as helping to meet SMSC, Prevent and British Values requirements.
