Lesson 1: Causes of WW2

Lesson 1: The courses of World War II


In this lesson you will learn about the causes of WW2 and you will know when it took place.

Download the PowerPoint and ensure you understand each slide before moving on.


I would like you to produce a poster which explains the different factors that led to the start of WW2 - I have posted an example for you but of course please be as creative as you want to.


You must include the following:

When did WW2 start and end?

Who were some of the world leaders involved and what part did they play at the beginning? In particular, who was the Prime Minister of the UK at the start of WW2?

What were some of the ideas that different world leaders had?
