PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Engage your students with these higher level questions about these seven classic Cold War era songs. Some kids are putting these on their playlists and emailing me for more Cold War tunes after this activity. I like putting kids in groups for this activity.

Russians -- Sting
Leningrad -- Billy Joel
99 Red Balloons -- Nena (kids love this!)
Atomic Cocktail -- Slim Gaillard Quartet
Winds of Change -- Scorpions
Hello Vietnam -- Dave Dudley
Back in the USSR -- The Beatles

Topics touched upon include MAD, brinkmanship, Berlin, Cold War anxiety, nuclear war, Korea, McCarthy, Sputnik, Cuba and Cuban Missile Crisis, fall of USSR, domino theory, and others.

Sorry the music and lyrics are not included (I don't want to break copyright rules).

Best Wishes,

The Past is a Blast
