This is the eighth unit in a series covering the Cold War. It is a reading activity that includes a lesson describing the events that occurred during the space race between the Soviet Union and the United States of America. The lesson 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 and true and false questions. It also includes a set of student response writing questions that challenge the students to consider the content in ways that foster critical thinking skills. The lessons were developed with Common Core Standards in mind.
The entire Cold War package is available here: Cold War Bundle
