Students review Europe between the wars, specifically the Treaty of Versailles to Hitler's invasion of Poland, by organizing 29 items on a timeline and classifying them according to a system in the instructions. Students then complete one task for 8 items of their choice and a different task for 4 other items. All instructions are provided in the handout. There are arrows in the first two lines of the timeline showing students the direction to fill out the pieces in. This could work for a sub and is appropriate for US History or World History. Answers are provided where appropriate.
Sample timeline items and questions include:
--Bolsheviks defeat the Whites
--Beer Hall Putsch
--Japan invades Manchuria
--America passes Neutrality Acts
--Kellogg-Briand Pact signed
--France occupies the Ruhr
--Explain how America’s pullback from foreign affairs after WWI impacted international events.
-- Is there a way that things could have gone differently in Europe between the wars? Why and how or why not?
***a teacher's note is included in the file describing an alternate way students can complete this activity***
