Origins of the Cold War event cards

Made with the excellent Typorama app, these event cards are on the origins of the Cold War. My students requested these for revision and can be used in a variety of ways – 

  • Used for a visual timeline which students can annotate each card with details from their own knowledge.
  • Used as a revision card game, such as Guess Who, where students take it in turns to guess which event card the other is holding by asking a fixed number of questions that can only be answered with a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’.
  • Used as a domino set where students play dominoes with the event cards and when playing a card they have to explain where each card touches how the events link together.

One thought on “Origins of the Cold War event cards

  1. Nice way to remember. Although I always connect the dots by visualizing what decision the leaders of that time took and what were its consequences. It helps me to grip the concept more clearly. Because history was created out of choices and that choices had their effects.
