PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Cold War Presidents Webquest (Truman to Bush 1945-1993)

Students will gain basic knowledge about our Presidents during the Cold War time period by completing an internet-based worksheet. The Cold War President webquest uses the following great website.

http://www.ducksters.com/biography/uspresidents/

My students enjoy learning new facts about the Presidents from the website. I usually use this activity as a review or introduction activity for my middle school students and it takes at least one class period for students to cover each time period. High school students usually take less time to finish the webquest. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students.

The following questions are covered are in the webquest.

Vice President:

What state was this President born in:
What year did this President die:
Nickname:
What is this President most known for:
