This is a great worksheet to help students understand the beginning of the Cold War and America's containment policy. It includes a brief introduction that explains how the US and Soviet Union were left as the two Superpowers after World War II and what that meant for Europe.
Students then analyze a primary source political cartoon on Truman's containment policy from 1947. Six questions are included based on Common Core-aligned analysis strategies. An answer key for this is provided.
This makes for a great warm up activity, homework assignment, or wrap up activity for the beginning of the Cold War!
