Product Description
Why didn't the U.S. join the League of Nations? In this lesson, students use political cartoons to learn why Americans supported and opposed U.S. membership in the League of Nations through ratification of the Treaty of Versailles [note: the U.S. ultimately failed to ratify the Treaty and join the League].. Students then critically engage with speeches supporting and opposing the League, including a speech from the Prime Minister of Poland. Finally, students will have an opportunity to state their own opinions when they assume the role of U.S. Senator and write a speech supporting or opposing the League.
This lesson is easily customizable by reducing the number of political cartoons and/or speeches.

This lesson focuses solely on the debate over ratification of the Treaty of Versailles and the Senate’s ultimate decision to reject the treaty and abstain from membership in the League of Nations at the end of WWI. The reasons for U.S. entry into WWI, the homefront, and the end of the war should have already been taught prior to this lesson.
A lesson on U.S. entry into WWI is available on my TPT website
