This mini lesson on the American policy of containment of communism during the Cold War is a short 7 slide overview power point with background information, discussion questions, and activities built in. There is also a pdf of a primary source on Kennan's containment policy with 6 large questions. Students learn what containment was, what alternate options there were, how containment was practiced, they put excerpts of the policy into their own words, and more! The answers are not included because they are based on student opinion/interpretation.
***there is pertinent information in the presenter's notes of the power point, please make sure you look at them***
