This set of flashcards can be used to review the Cold War.
*Flashcards are in a PDF format. There are 2 flashcards per page. To use these in my classroom, I cut the page in half horizontally, fold the flashcard over, then laminate. After I laminate the flashcards, I hole punch these and put a book ring through each set. A preview flashcard is also included that can be attached to the front of the stack to keep the cards organized and labeled.
*Also included is an editable PowerPoint slide if you would like to add any terms or questions to your set. Just insert a text box over the frame and type your questions. The font I have used throughout this set is KG Lego House and is free to download for personal use through Kimberly Geswein's TpT store.
