Teach your students how to use their critical thinking skills to solve problems as a group with this Munich Conference simulation! This simulation begs the question, "What if the Axis and Allies came together in the name of peace to prevent world war?" Pull down a political world map or some globes, introduce the activity, and let them get creative with their problem solving!

This lesson will consist of student involvement in an activity that simulates a sort of Munich Conference scenario. We will organize into teams that will represent nations to attempt to find a diplomatic means to avoid any war in Europe or Asia.
This will build off the lesson "World War II Leaders" about the leaders involved in the start of World War II as well as generally geography of the time, and this simulation should also act as a formative assessment. The main point to this lesson is to demonstrate that each country was intertwined with several others at the dawn of World War II, and that the numerous circumstances would have made peace without war difficult, if not impossible.
This lesson includes:
- Lesson plan
