The Cold War: L0 'What and where was the Cold War?'

The Cold War: L0 'What and where was the Cold War?'

The first lesson in our KS3 Cold War unit. This enquiry acts as an introductory overview to the Cold War unit. which allows your students to work out what the Cold War was and where it happened. It is always important to see the big picture before exploring the content. A classic introductory overview your students will look at a number images from events across the period. They will match captions to the images to work out what was going on.This will help define what the Cold War was and plot on a map where the main flash points happened and work out what they can learn from each caption/image. A report task with a literacy focus concludes the lesson. A never heard the word document is included too. As always there are clear step by step instructions and differentiated resources.
