Relaxing and Rewarding! Take advantage of Dr. Seuss' wonderful story called The Butter Battle Book; it highlights key standard information and concepts in regards to the arms race that occurred between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. I developed an active video guide that follows along with the short film, including the times where specific questions and terms are located. The objective of this resource is to draw parallels between the story and the Cold War.
To complement this resource, I recommend using the youtube version of The Butter Battle Book as a companion. However, the physical illustrated book would suffice.
