Revision crosswords on the Cold War

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Events, dear boy, events.  And the Cold War period was packed full of them - so many in fact that GCSE History students can be forgiven for confusing Potsdam with Prague or Detente with the Domino Effect.

Here are a couple of revision crosswords which you might use with students to help reinforce core knowledge of what happened and when during the Cold War.  There are two crosswords - one with 10 clues and one with 20 clues.

Many thanks to Andy Lawrence for producing these resources which we are about to make available as part of a comprehensive PuzzlePack on the Cold War for GCSE History students

Revision Puzzle on the Personalities of the Cold War

Do you have students who don’t know their Arms Races from their Eisenhower?

Here is a matching activity which can be used to help students test their knowledge of the main historical characters involved in the Cold War.  There are two puzzles - one has 10 people listed; the other has 15 people.  The aim is to match the person with the clue!
