The Road to War: 1930s Overview

Crafted with history educators in mind, this resource aims to impart a thorough understanding of the “Road to War” in the 1930s to students. The modern history lesson plan offers a comprehensive overview of the events that culminated in the outbreak of World War II.

In this worksheet, students will be taken through a timeline of aggressive behaviours by several countries during the 1930s. This timeline will provide a clear and concise understanding of the events leading up to the war. The worksheet will also focus on the end of the Locarno Settlement and Appeasement, which played a crucial role in the build-up to the war.

The appeasement policy has been widely criticised for encouraging the expansionist ambitions of these powers and for allowing the rise of Nazi Germany, which threatened peace and stability in Europe. Therefore, appeasement is essential for students who want a comprehensive understanding of modern history and the events that led to World War II. It provides valuable lessons in international relations, diplomacy, and critical thinking, making it an essential topic for students to study.

Student activities included in this worksheet are designed to be both engaging and interactive. One such activity involves students creating a mind map or infographic that showcases the various events of the 1930s and the actions of different countries. This will help students understand the complex political situation of the time and the events that led to the outbreak of World War II.

This worksheet will be an invaluable resource for history teachers looking to deepen their student’s understanding of this pivotal period in modern history.
