Looking for a way to make the Cold War time period realistic for you students then try this Bomb Shelter Game. Turn your own classroom into a bomb shelter and have your students measure the classroom and figure out how many people/supplies could fit in the room. Students will have to narrow down who and what is the most important for their shelter. I recommend showing a clip from the film Blast from the Past with Brendan Fraser. This is a cute movie to get your students excited for the activity.
