In this creative Cold War activity, students process what they have learned about 8 Cold War figures by hosting a "dinner party" to help ease Cold War tension.
Your students will have to think critically about ideas that each shared in common and who would not get along and turn the dinner "frosty". Students make connections about leaders of democracies and communist countries and explain what each pair at the table will think about and discuss.
This is an excellent activity to review a unit on the Cold War. It can easily be differentiated for advanced students to make complex connections or for lower-level learners to see simple similarities and differences.
This includes two different types of dinner tables (round and long) to differentiate and provide varied choices. An answer key is not included because there are dozens of ways this can be completed correctly. It allows for a lot of creativity!
Also now included is a digital Google Drive
version of the activity that has students click on each person to learn more, then drag-and-drop them around a dinner table!
