My kids found it really interesting because of the
We started off looking at Russia/U.S.S.R.'s timeline (you can see the slideshow on my tackk board and all my other lessons are there also by week if you want to check it out!) creating a timeline together as we went. Then we looked at the Soviet Union looked like then and now, labeling a map of what countries use to be apart of the Soviet Union.
Yes, I know it says "1898" when it should say '1989"... Totally already fixed it.
The next day we took a closer look at Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine by creating a Fact Book. Students explored and discovered more about these places and were all all about the interesting facts (ie. there are 9 million more women than men in Russia, so if you are looking for a husband don't move there... you will have a lot of competition!)
I did Russia with them and then they completed the other 2 on their own.
