Overview: Students will be assigned a historical figure from the early period of the Cold War. Students will research the Cold War using the guided questions. Students will use their understanding of their figure to create a Valentine Gram and Candy Heart Conversation description (examples provided). Groups will create posters and present their information to the class. Students will take notes on group presentations using a graphic organizer (included). After all groups have presented students will match up the Cold War figures using the handout (included). All handouts and files are editable and can easily be adjusted for another unit of study (Would work great for WWII leaders as well...just change the names). FUN Valentine's Day or Spring activity!
