This dynamic presentation on the Korean War provides visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson. The first major conflict of the Cold War comes to life with this lesson.
Sometimes called the forgotten war, this was one of the first major conflicts of the Cold War and a significant test for the new U.N. This conflict was fought essentially to a standstill and technically the two sides are still at war today.
Topics covered in this presentation include:
♦ Geography of Korea
♦ Background of the conflict
♦ Role of the U.N.
♦ Cold War Paranoia
♦ Role of China
♦ Truman Doctrine
♦ Stages of the War
♦ Legacy of the conflict
It includes handouts for note taking as well as reflection questions.
There are nine links within the presentation to Youtube. The videos total ~24 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary.
This lesson takes me approximately two 60 minute periods to complete.
