To understand the causes, major events, and results of the Vietnam War.
1 class period
This lesson includes four sections with information pertaining to the Vietnam War:
• Background/Early Events
• The Fighting Escalates
• Final Years of the War
• Results of the War
Within each section, students will read through a series of sentences and fill in the missing word, name, or term from a list that is provided.
As the teacher, you can decide whether to use this activity as a contest, a game with competing teams, or an assignment for individuals. Class members might be given the option of working with one other student (always very popular in my class!) or by themselves.
Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
