In this two-day lesson, students will examine the terms within the Treaty of Versailles by analyzing excerpts from the treaty itself and write a newspaper article detailing the terms and those that were present at the conference and their personal reaction to the Treaty of Versailles. Students will also be provided with two European maps. One map is of Europe in 1914 and the other one is of Europe in 1919. These political maps should provide the students a visual of what occurred before and after the war, the nations created and the archaic empires that fell. The 1919 map will be crucial for student understanding of German aggression in the 1930s, and German and Soviet aggression in 1939 up to and through June 1941.
