This product is a 10 page PowerPoint presentation including text, pictures, and maps. You will also receive a 2 page student guide! I used this PowerPoint and study guide to introduce our Cold War Unit. My 5th graders LOVE following along with PowerPoints full of pictures and information. It makes them feel like older students!
I wrote this intro to the Cold War in simple, accessible terms for 5th grade (or similar age) students. You will discuss the causes and obstacles that led to US/USSR conflict. Major terms include: communism, democracy, The United Nations, NATO, Josef Stalin, Iron Curtain, Berlin Airlift, and more!
How to use this product:
1. Make a copy of the student guide for each student. I had my kiddos glue this into their interactive notebooks. If not, punch holes in it for their binders.
2. Go through the PowerPoint with students, filling in stories and examples to fit your social studies curriculum. As you talk, students can fill in the blanks on their student guides, ask questions, and add to the discussion.
