- 0. Daily Plans I have included my 2 weeks of daily plans. There is way more material than the 2 weeks but just wanted to give you my plans as a reference.

- 1. Pre-test Pre-test with Key

- 2. Cold War PPT This is a 23 slide presentation that will walk you through all the major events of the COLD WAR. It is very visual with very little text.

- 3. We Didn't Start the Fire We Didn't Start the Fire with lyrics and the link to The Russians. This is a great way to look at the Cold War as many of the students have not heard or seen this songs before.

We Didn't Start the Fire with Lyrics

We Didn't Start the Fire

Sting The Russians with Lyrics

The Russians by Sting

- 4. Cold War Video As a follow up to the PPT and the songs I like to show the show Death of Nation as it is really shows how Russia has evolved over the last couple of decades. I have included a video guide for this as well.

Death of Nation Russia


- 5. Cold War Test and Quiz Cold War Test is also included.

- 6. Communist Cartoons 2 different cartoons that represent the Cold War and what was going on at the time. These are just fun but really convey the message of the Cold War.

- 7. Who Caused the Cold WarWho Caused the Cold War Fantastic assignment that I do every year. It puts the blame on one of the big 3 as the students will use all that they have learned to prove one way or another. Very similar to a DBQ.

- 8. VICE A great way to finish off the year with some Vice episodes. They are all available on youtube to watch and show in your classroom.


- 9. Paragraph Prompts – These some good ideas to have your students write about during the course of the year. They are apart of my free download that is in my store.

- 10. BONUS #1 Three additional Berlin Crisis, Cold War Cartoons, Domino Theory. These are great lessons that I got from Share my lesson and am just including them as I really enjoy using them.

- 11. Flipped Classroom Guide - This guide is a great way to teach a PPT/ Keynote. It allows the students to dig into the PPT/ Keynote and discuss with a group and meet with the teacher.

- 12. Crash Course Cold War #39 – This is my 5 page guide that I show following the direct teaching. This can be used as a quiz, notes, or a great follow up discussion to the Cold War.

13. Gift Assignment – The gift is a visual representation of the chapter using vocabulary, images and organization to show the understanding of the material.


BONUS #2 - I also added my 11 favorite Youtube videos that are all 3-4 minutes in length so that they may be embedded in the PPT.
