The Cold War Cuban Missile Crisis occurred in 1962 when the Soviet Union began to install nuclear missiles in Cuba. During this search, your students use a variety of strategies and skills that will prepare them to do research using the internet as they learn about the thirteen tense days and many secret negotiations between the two major powers.
This is a great way to increase your students' ability to use technology as part of their whole learning experience. The student worksheet has questions and writing prompts included. An answer key is provided. There is an optional word search for early finishers.
There is a bundle of seven webquests all about the cold war.
