Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To understand how events in Cuba brought the United States and Soviet Union closer to war than at any other time during the Cold War.

TIME:
30 minutes

The lesson begins by reading with the class a few introductory paragraphs that describe how the Cuban Missile Crisis originated.

Students will then read through a chronology of events that occurred on the following dates:

• Tuesday, October 16, 1962
• Monday, October 22
• Tuesday, October 23
• Wednesday, October 24
• Thursday, October 25
• Friday, October 26
• Sunday, October 28

After reading and learning about events during the Cuban Missile Crisis, class members answer three Thought Questions that require brief written answers of 40-60 words. This helps develop critical thinking skills. Responses can be discussed later in the period.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
