The causes of WWII are varied and complex. Help students start their exploration of WWII using this lesson plan, in which students use graphic organizers, discussion / debate, and Internet research to begin to understand one of the most important events in human history.
In this lesson, students will evaluate multiple causes of WWII; create a graphic organizer (multi-flow thinking map) showing several causes of WWII; discuss and debate the relative importance of the causes of WWII; and summarize what they have learned about the causes of WWII.
