This activity recounts some of the most important events and themes in Russia's long history. Statements are listed in chronological order, but key words are left out. Unfortunately, your World History (orange) book does not include Russia and our World Geography book (blue) is not written chronologically. So while some of the story is told in the textbook, most of the information comes from other sources.
The following sources may be helpful in helping you piece the story together. However, you may use other internet sources or do your own search.
To help you put the story of Russia together, you may use the word bank below. A separate document is also posted on Canvas if you want to print out the words. A word in the word bank will only be used once. I recommend looking up any words you do not know to help you fill in the correct blanks.
abdicate Baltic Berlin Black Bolsheviks Catherine Chechnya collective command communism competition czar elected escaping fifteen glasnost Great guard ideas independence inflation Iron Lenin Lithuania Marx media millions Napoleon nuclear perestroika port privatization Putin quality restricted serfs shortages Siberia single Soviet ten Terrible territory totalitarian troops Ukraine Vietnam winter worship Yeltsin
Another strategy is to use contextual clues. For example, if your blank is a last name, you will not put "Vietnam" in that space. Although Canvas calls this a "quiz" you can redo the assignment as many times as you need to complete the story 100%.
