The Cold War, John F. Kennedy, Nakita Khrushchev, and the Cuban Missile Crisis come to life in this U.S. History simulation. Let your students become Ex Comm Advisers to JFK and help him make decisions during that high stakes week in late October of 1962. Students can do this individually or in small groups. They will get to make real decisions that were being discussed during the crisis. It is set up similar to a choose your own adventure and students will be able to keep score of their progress. This product includes a PowerPoint and a Word Document that students complete as they go. This is a great way to get students discussing and gives them a chance to put themselves in the situation room and think about the effects their decisions will have on all those involved.This is designed for a one 55 min. class period. The word document is the free preview file and the PPT is the paid product.
