This lesson plan on the Cold War's Space Race has been totally updated to now include a Google Classroom version!
The lesson includes 11 1-page articles which students can read to learn about key events in the space race. Students use these to create newspaper pages which they can then present and use to create a human timeline and interactive notebook page timeline!
The events include: Sputnik, the famous Soviet dog Laika , voyages of John Glenn, Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong, Voyager, launching of the Hubble Telescope, & more!
This can be differentiated in your classes by having students work in pairs, groups, or individually.
The new Google Classroom version features a "drag and drop" timeline of events and links to dozens of online sources for students to read about the events of the Space Race! If you're in a paperless classroom or just want to integrate more digital resources, this is a great digital learning activity for the Cold War!
