The Abyssinian Crisis and the League of Nations Response

The Abyssinian Crisis was a pivotal moment in modern history that marked a significant turning point in the international community’s response to aggression. The invasion of Abyssinia by Italy in 1935 was a defining moment for the League of Nations, the international organisation established after World War I to promote peace and stability. This lesson plan provides an in-depth overview of the events of the Abyssinian Crisis and the League of Nations’ response to this act of aggression.

The lesson begins by exploring the background of the Abyssinian Crisis, including the political, economic and social factors that led to the invasion. Students will then learn about the League of Nations’ response to the crisis, including the efforts to mediate the conflict and the sanctions imposed on Italy. They will also learn about the impact of the League of Nations’ response on international relations and its role in shaping the interwar period’s events.

The lesson plan includes a range of student activities to engage students in the material. Comprehension questions will test students’ understanding of key concepts and ideas. A short film will provide students with a visual representation of the events of the Abyssinian Crisis and the League of Nations’ response. Source analysis activities will encourage students to examine primary sources and develop critical thinking skills. Finally, students will have the opportunity to create a newspaper article, imagining that they are reporting on the events of the Abyssinian Crisis and the League of Nations’ response at the time.

This lesson is perfect for older students who are studying Fascist Italy during the Interwar period or students studying the League of Nations. It provides an in-depth understanding of the events of the Abyssinian Crisis and the League of Nations’ response. It helps students to develop critical thinking skills as they analyse and interpret primary sources. Through various engaging activities, students will gain a deeper understanding of this crucial moment in modern history and its impact on international relations.
