The Cold War Entire Unit
The Cold War Unit Bundled includes Cold War PowerPoints with short video links, primary source readings, maps, and assessment/test, all bound together by daily lesson plans. Each lesson begins with a warm-up, and continues with PowerPoint notes, a primary source document reading or map activity and an exit ticket. Unit also includes a Kahoot! online review game tailored for the exam, and an assessment/test. PowerPoint notes include lecture notes to guide you through the presentation. I have used these lessons with Honors and regular students. Cold War PowerPoints also include youtube links to short videos that engage the students.
