Cold War & McCarthyism Political Cartoon Analysis
This great activity has students analyze 8 political cartoons from the 1950's-1960's. Each deals with Red Scare hysteria, McCarthyism, the HUAC, and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Students must determine the subject of each cartoon, describe the action taking place, and analyze the cartoonist's message. Each cartoon does an amazing job of simplifying complex issues and really getting to the heart of how the Red Scare affected America.
This is fantastic as a group activity or for individual students to complete in-class. An answer key is included for your convenience.
