Cold War Project

As we finish our studies of World War II, it is appropriate to start thinking about the long struggle that emerged in the wake of that war, known as the Cold War. This is a long-term project that will help students learn about a particular aspect of the Cold War.

Cold War PowerPoint presentation:

Details: Students will….

  • conduct at least 2 interviews of adults whom you believe may know something about the Cold War
  • prepare a written paper 3-4 pages in length (double spaced). Further directions will follow.
