Product Description
Teeming with precise and carefully selected evidence my students love playing this game to boost subject knowledge. There are 111 cards (which work best when cut out and laminated) including all the figures you would expect such as JFK, Khruschev, and Gorbachev etc but also less well known characters from the period such as Laika (Russian Space Dog or 'Woofnik'), Phan Kim Thi Phuc (the Vietnamese girl in the famous napalm photo), Bobby Fischer (US chess champion) and many more besides. On each card there is a key date/event for that person, a precise statistic, and a quotation. There is also a 'bonus' question for students to research independently. Students simply call out a category and the person with the highest card 'trumps' the other, winning their card. The objective is to strip your opponent of their cards to win the game. This is a resource I am very proud of and which has received many accolades from students and lesson observations alike. It works well as a stand alone activity to really boost your students subject knowledge and equally it can be used as a starter or plenary to any Cold War lesson. I hope your students get as much out of this resource as mine have done over the years!
