The Korean War is often referred to as the Forgotten War. It usually doesn't receive as much attention as World War II or the controversial Vietnam War which followed it. The Korean War was the first real conflict of the Cold War period where a combined United Nations military force made up of mostly American troops intervened when communist North Korean troops backed by the Soviet Union invaded South Korea. Students will learn about the background and causes of the Korean War, major battles like Inchon and Choisin Reservoir, and major figures like Truman, Stalin, MacArthur, and Kim Il-sung. Our resource provides ready-to-use information and activities for all students in grades five to eight. Packed with reading passages, student activities, color overheads and fun exercises, this resource can be used effectively for whole class, small group and independent work.
