How close did the Cold War come to Nuclear War? 

Nuclear bombHow close did the Cold War come to Nuclear War?

Was the Cuban Missile Crisis the closest the World ever came to nuclear war? Allow your students to investigate this question using protest songs, desk-top timelines and Geese.

It fits neatly into any Scheme of Work that includes a study of the Cuban Missile Crisis, especially the Edexcel and AQA 9-1 GCSE units.

The enquiry enables students to develop an overview of the nuclear arms race.
