The Cold War Simulation Activity is an interactive lesson plan, featuring different aspects of the Cold War Era. Mr. Harms produces interactive history lesson plans for high school and middle school students. Developed and honed over 2 decades of use, the Cold War Simulation is used by hundreds of teachers throughout North America. Developed by a history teacher, they allow students to take possession of a country and then participate in small group activities as the Cold War heats up. This is a lesson plan that can be used every year and which students will look forward to.

One of the objectives of this Cold War Activity is to help students feel what it was like to live with the threat of nuclear war and understand the emotions and consequences of escalation and Mutually Assured Destruction. The Cold War Simulation is a collection of Word and Excel documents. The documents are organized in binders or in a computer lab/1:1 set-up electronically for students and used in combination with the War Map on your projector to bring The Cold War to life in your classroom!
