These 10 questions of varying difficulty are from the Don't Know Much About History section titled "What Happened at the Bay of Pigs?" This can be an intro or wrap up activity, or for when you have a sub. Students can read the section from DKMAH (actual text not included for copyright purposes) and answer the questions in this handout. The answer key is included.
Sample questions include:
-How was the Peace Corps linked to one of the great disasters in American foreign policy?
-Who were La Brigada?
-Explain the connection between Teddy Roosevelt and Cuba’s economy.
-Discuss some of the reasons the plan failed.
