- Activity 1 - Cuban Missile Crisis and Vietnam (map animation - subscription based, or simply complete as oral lecture using answer key).
- Activity 2 - Vietnam - students view primary footage of Vietnam on YouTube. They also listen to music about Vietnam!
- Activity 3 - American Foreign Relations with USSR and China (based on free online textbook)
- Activity 4 - Berlin Wall - students view primary footage of the fall of the wall in 1989.
In addition, I recommend showing episodes from Ken Burns new series, "The Vietnam War." This is an exceptional series.
