Rise of Dictatorships - World War 2 Pop Up Figures Lesson Plan
This wonderfully creative lesson has students creating pop up figures of 5 dictators who came to power in the 1920's and 30's before World War II.
Included is a printable sheet with 5 people for your students to cut out: Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Francisco Franco, Benito Mussolini, and Hideki Tojo. Students then place these onto an included world map that covers 2 pages of their notebooks with spaces for notes about each person.
A PowerPoint comes with this download as well that covers the essential information students need to know about each dictator. The PowerPoint has a warm up, quotes, wonderful pictures, and engaging content to keep your students focused on your lesson.
This lesson is amazing for your visual and kinesthetic learners as they are creating a fantastic visual representation of dictators literally rising up out of their notebooks!
Finally, an additional map is included of Europe in 1939 for students to color and label.
