Instead of delivering lessons on the reasons why the Cold War begun, why not allow students investigate and acquire knowledge for themselves! Not only will it massively help students research, investigating and writing skills but it will also free you up with some time to do other things!
I did this with my year 9 class and it worked well! It took a bit of motivating but once they got over the thought of writing an extended piece of essay, they flourished, some even writing 3,000 words!
The idea is to introduce it as a project, with you delivering an intro into the Cold War and pointing them down the right route.
The resource includes a source pack which students can use to reference their sources (I taught mine how to use footnotes and make a bibliography too!) a time line for their work but you can edit that and decide how long you would like them to spend on it. I have also included a success criteria with three levels, but you can add an extra one if needed.
I have not included a lesson plan, because you wont really need it, once you get the students rolling, you can just check up on them to see how they are progressing. This is a great opportunity to challenge some students and to also push the Gifted and Talented.
