Have students follow along to identify 4 causes (e.g. Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan), 4 figures (e.g. Mikael Gorbachev), 4 events (e.g. Fall of the Berlin Wall) and 4 effects (e.g. Dissolution of the USSR) of the Collapse of the Soviet Union. Also, have students work on the Gorbachev Stick Figure mini-biography assignment for homework, classwork, or group work. Thumbnail printouts of the 16 images are available for students to cut out and paste in the boxes as well. Enjoy!
