Product Description

In “Cold War: Time Travel Escape Room” students are in the process of time traveling back in time to study the Cold War when their time machine malfunctions! The only way for students to repair the time machine and return to the present is for students to successfully complete seven challenges. Challenges can be used to introduce students to or to help students review important events and terms associated with the Cold War:


+ Warsaw Pact

+ Arms Race

+ Space Race

+ Berlin Wall

+ Korean War

+ Vietnam War

Challenges require students to use critical thinking and inference skills. Challenges include activities such as:

+ putting events in chronological order

+ decoding famous Cold War quotes to learn more about specific events

+ using a map to identify and sort countries that were part of NATO or the Warsaw Pact

+ reading passages to learn more about specific events

+ using graphs to answer questions

+ matching specific events to a description of the event

This escape room activity is specifically aligned with Virginia SOL USII.8c but also covers most U.S. History standards associated with the Cold War.

Students will have fun exploring the history of the Cold War as they solve the challenges and work to return to the present in this escape room activity! Teacher instructions are provided that explain how to set up and implement the activity in your classroom.
