Containment & the Korean & Vietnam Wars PowerPoint Lesson
This is a beautiful, fantastically simple PowerPoint that engages students visually and covers all the essential information to know about both the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
I use this for both my World and US History students to explain the similarities and differences of the two. The 24 slide PowerPoint includes many amazing pictures, maps, animated flags, and more.
In addition to taking notes, students complete a Venn diagram comparing the two wars, can color an included outline map, and answer exit ticket questions.
With North Korea in the news so much now, this lesson does a fantastic job explaining why it is divided today at the 38th Parallel and what the tension is all about.
This makes for an excellent lesson prior to assigning students this Vietnam War station activity
Also, see here for an amazing lesson featuring RARE pages from the North Korean perspective on the war
! Incredibly relevant for today's current tension!
