This is lesson 9 and 10 of the KS3 Year 9 Cold War SOW that I have designed. During this lesson students learn about the key reasons why the USA got involved in Vietnam. In the second lesson the students look at different reasons as to why the USA failed in Vietnam- they will look at problems at home vs problems in Vietnam in a speed dating task. There is no need to use any textbooks, all resources are provided at the end of the PP to print. I hope you enjoy. Please find the other lessons in my shop :)
