This is the entire package download by Reading Through History for the Cold War. It includes twenty-nine reading activities covering topics that span from the origins of communism to the downfall of the Soviet Union. Each set of reading activities is followed up with multiple choice reading comprehension questions, a matching and vocabulary section concerning the content, and a series of fill in the blank answers. Each section also includes a set of student response writing questions that challenge the reader to consider the content in ways that foster critical thinking skills. The download has over 80 pages worth of student activities, meaning that a world history, U.S. history, home school, or reading teacher will never be at a loss for materials concerning the Cold War again. We have even included a final test with fifty multiple choice questions, meaning everything is included for teaching an entire unit over the Cold War. Each lesson was developed with Common Core Standards in mind.
