Cold War Video Lessons


All episodes and lessons teach through the power of story to make history relevant and engaging for students. In the first episode students learn what caused the Cold War and how the Berlin Airlift was the first major challenge the US faced. In the next video-lesson, students learn how the Red Scare impacted America at home and led to the dangerous rise of Joseph McCarthy. In the last episode, students learn about the arms-race and how the Cuban Missile Crisis nearly led to nuclear war and how Kennedy handled the crisis. The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still rich and interesting. 


1. Analyze primary sources to understand why a crisis developed in Berlin and how both the US and USSR handled it.

2. Compare political cartoons and a speech on McCarthyism to understand how civil liberties were tarnished during the Red Scare.

3. Simulation- Students act as EXCOMM and Kennedy to decide how to handle the Cuban Missile Crisis. They weigh the options, make a decision, and write a speech to the public.

This bundle requires no-prep  and includes all resources needed, supports for diverse learners, and are ready to engage and excite your students! And there are  answer keys for everything! ✅
