106 What do you think is the biggest fear we might have as nation right now?
107 Communism and the threat of the atomic bomb dominated life for Americans and their leaders in the 1950s. The threat of an atomic attack against the United States forced Americans to prepare for a surprise attack.
108 Bomb shelters and air raids drills were a result of this fear
117 The Scenario: Nuclear war has been declared. The only people that will survive the attack must be inside the bomb shelter. Here is the problem. The bomb shelter only has space and supplies for 6 people. In order to survive, 4 people must stay inside the shelter for at least 3 months. At hand is the survival of humans on Earth. The repopulation of Earth will depend on the 6 people that survive, The Task: Your group is to decide, based on the information given, which people will be allowed to remain (and live) and which people will be left out of the shelter (and die). Carefully evaluate all the information given. Consider their health, experience, age, gender, talents, intelligence, etc. Next: On a separate sheet of paper, list the 6 people that will stay in the shelter. Explain and give reasons why each person was allowed to stay in the shelter. Also, list the people that were chosen to leave and give reasons for this decision. Next, choose a leader for your group to present the decisions to the rest of the class.

121 Why was there a fear of communism in the 1950s? The fear and distrust of communism intensified in America when the Soviet Union began to test nuclear weapons
122 A near hysteria was created in the late 40's and 50's with hearings led by Joseph McCarthy accusing people of belonging to the Communist PartyJoseph McCarthy “Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?”
127 1954- Finally, an army lawyer named Joseph Welch stood up to McCarthy. Later that year, the Senate passed a vote of censure, or formal disapproval, against McCarthy. McCarthy you are a liar and an idiot!
128 Students pick a small piece of paper from a plastic bag. Some of the pieces of paper have a red dot on them while most of the pieces are blank. Students are not to reveal what is on their piece of paper to anyone else. The object of the “game” is for the students to create the largest group possible without any red dots. They may question each other as they form groups. The largest group without a member with a red dot wins. Any person who holds a red dot and has infiltrated a group wins. The purpose of the “game” is for the students to experience some of the suspicions associated with the McCarthy Era.
