Instead of me giving you a crossword puzzle to fill out, you will be creating one for me. You will be assigned a section (1-3) from Chapter 23 of our book (Postwar America) from which you will create a crossword puzzle. Follow the steps below:
1. Read your assigned section
2. Find 10 terms/concepts/person that is significant (important)
3. Place the 10 terms on the graph paper, just like a crossword puzzle . . . make sure each word intersects with another. Don't leave any spaces.
4. Come up with clues or descriptions of the 10 terms/concepts/person on the bottom half of the page.
5. On the back side, outline the boxes where the terms/concepts/person will be found. Include the clues for Down and Across terms/concepts/person.
Today we continued on discussing the Cold War and it's effects around the world, especially in the United States. We viewed the Cold War Prezi, but stopped when it got to Vietnam as we will discuss that later on this year. A worksheet was assigned that requires you to read Chapter 22, section 4 as well as a review over the entire chapter. Towards the end of class we reviewed some questions that have been found on previous tests.

If you want to be tricky, you can make more than one answer be correct. Someone in your group will need to create a Kahoot account. Use Chapter 22 to come up with your questions, each group will be assigned one section within the chapter. Stay away from too goofy of answers, make it difficult enough where the player might have to use the book to find the answer if they haven't read it yet.
