Looking for a creative and fun way to show your students the aggression the dictators of Germany, Italy and Japan took before World War 2?
Look no further!
This "Aggression Before World War 2: Dictators Play Risk" Activity includes:
1) Three detailed maps that ask your students to color the territories that these aggressor nations took before the war. When completed, your students will see a stunning colored map of the path of destruction taken before the war. Students will use different colors based on the provided timeline to show the path taken. Students will then be asked a series of questions that probe their knowledge about why these dictators did what they did. One of the central ideas of the activity centers around the failed Treaty of Versailles and the weak League of Nations that allow this aggression to occur.
This activity can be used in many different ways in the classroom. Students can work independently, in pairs or this activity can be used as a jigsaw in order to facilitate a class wide discussion about the topics discussed in the activity.
2) A detailed answer key to the lesson activity to save you time and help guide student comprehension.
