I use this student simulation at the beginning of my Cold War Unit/ McCarthyism-Red Scare Lesson. It is meant to simulate the basic experience of many Americans living under the fear and suspicion of communism (Red Scare) during the 1950’s- it is a fun simulation and piques student interest in the topic. Included in this activity is:
1) Step- by- step instructions, handouts, student worksheets etc. to conduct a short 10 minute student simulation and follow-up whole class activity.
2) Primary source analysis extension activity- great for independent work!
Activity is ready to print and go! Have Fun!
