All our videos teach through the power of story to make the history relevant and memorable. In this video-lesson, students learn the amazing story of how America, Britain, and other Allies, saved West Berlin and supplied the city during Operation Vittles against Stalin and the Soviet's blockade to understand the causes of the Cold War. Students learn about the Containment Policy, Truman Doctrine, Marshall Plan, Iron Curtain speech, the “chocolate bomber,” and the differences between America and the Soviet Union that first led to the Cold War. ✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
