The Strategic Arms Limitation Treaties (SALT) can be an interesting topic to discuss with your students, but why simply talk or read about them. In this lesson plan, students will experience history by simulating these treaties for themselves. This will allow students to experience history; thus, increasing their engagement and allowing students to make their own discoveries. Though I implement this activity when covering the 1970s and 1980s, this lesson can also link with present history as countries are trying to increase their stockpiles or develop nuclear weapons programs. Therefore, this simulation can be used in the World History classroom in addition to its typical U.S. History classroom. Generally, I teach this after students have a foundation on the policy of détente and some background on the SALT negotiations.
