This Cold War powerpoint has 43 colorful and engaging slides that can be an assessment tool, fun review, activity, or lesson plan. You and your students will love the fantastic pictures, charts, and political cartoons.
The Cold War Era began with the division of Germany after World War II. The Soviet Union and the United States were the remaining superpowers after WW2 and communism faced off versus democracy and capitalism.
This would also be a great Korean War powerpoint since I cover in depth the events that transpired on the 38th parallel, including the action taken by communist China. The fear of communist victory paved the way for sensationalism, McCarthyism, and containment. This post -World War 2 powerpoint also highlights alleged spies like Alger Hiss and the Rosenbergs. Also, there is a deadly arms race with the Soviets, going from the atomic bomb, the hydrogen bomb, and the launching of Sputnik.
Please see my example slides for an idea of what great material you will be receiving. Enjoy:)
