Product Description
Red Scare Simulation



This is a great lesson that I use with my US History class. I start with the 1920's PowerPoint, that takes 3 days, to go through to introduce the 1920's unit. ( This can be used for the 1950's no problem)

After the 2nd slide on the 1920's PPT I go over the Red Scare and how America could even think about turning to communism at a time like this. This simulation proves that even the innocent could be guilty. It is fun and lighthearted and the students will never forget this.

Here is what is included:

1. INTRO PPT- It is a 5 slide PPT that basically goes over the directions for the students and the teacher.

2. DIRECTIONS- These are the STEP by STEP directions that walk the teacher through the 20 minute simulation. I have also included a short reading to set the stage.
