This power point is designed to be used with 5th grade students to cover all the Cold War standards including the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War. I use the power point as a portion of a lecture. The students can either take notes, or they cut and paste the handout pages into their Interactive Notebooks. It meets the following standards:
SS5H7 The student will discuss the origins and consequences of the Cold War.
a. Explain the origin and meaning of the term “Iron Curtain.”
b. Explain how the United States sought to stop the spread of communism through the Berlin airlift, the Korean War, and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
c. Identify Joseph McCarthy and Nikita Khrushchev.
SS5H8 The student will describe the importance of key people, events, and developments between 1950-1975.
a. Discuss the importance of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Vietnam War.
