Cold War Conflicts Mini-DBQ Worksheets
This 5 page "Common Core" mini-DBQ is the perfect addition to a lecture on the major Cold War conflicts. I lectured briefly on the Berlin Airlift, the Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War and then passed this out as a more in-depth look at these events using primary source documents and photographs. 4 pages of this packet allow students to practice reading a primary source/photograph/political cartoon (or 2) and answer higher-level questions about that source, page 5 of the packet provides a conclusion activity-allowing students to synthesize their understanding of the previous 4 pages. The skills practiced in this packet will allow students to work towards Common Core skill proficiency.

This four page DBQ packet allows students to answer the question "Who won the Space Race and how was this accomplished?" using primary source documents, articles and photographs that they have analyzed. Documents (excerpts) included: article on Sputnik, telegram from Kennedy to Khrushev "Congratulations", Kennedy's inquiry into space race, Johnson's response, Kennedy's "goal to put a man on the moon" speech and an article on the moon landing. This activity allows students to practice their Common Core skills (critical thinking).
