This resource compares the similarities and differences between fascism and communism through a Venn diagram. There are 4 major categories: national emphasis/focus, imperialist activity, relationship w/labor, and economic control. There is also a similarities column. I have included both a blank Venn diagram and a teacher's copy with answers. I also wrote a small explanation of how this Venn diagram should be used as a baseline for understanding communism and fascism, and that throughout your unit there will be some transformation of facts based on the area that's being studied. So, use this when first introducing fascism and then ask students how Mussolini, Hitler, and Franco resemble this baseline definition or not. Or, modify the file any way you want and disregard my idea completely. Both work! Message me with any questions. The preview image appears messy but I assure you this resource is perfectly neat and tidy.
