Revise the causes of WW1 here
Activity to complete on the causes of WW1 starting

You must complete your mind map for revision. A good revision technique is to start with A3 and write all your ideas and key words. Then, do this again but on A4. Lastly, do this again but on to A5. You will be regurgitating your ideas so you will process this information to your memory so you do not forget! Do not waste your time with highlighting and making the notes look pretty, be effective!
The rise of Hitler and Nazi Germany
A great link to Germany between 1918 and 1939. This gives revision notes on the Weimar Republic, Nazi Beliefs, the Munich Putsch in 1923, Hitler’s rise to power, and the structure of control in Nazi Germany. There are lots of revision links and even tests to do online!
Hitler’s rise to power. A great video presented by Andrew Marr that is 8 minutes long that sums up a lot of the key points in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s. Whilst watching this, think about some of the key events that turned Hitler into a force and gave the Nazi party a strong status in Germany!
Key stage 3 video to WW2. A good summary video. Also, check the link at the bottom that says ‘glossary’. Adding these key words and having an understanding of them, i.e. appeasement, will really help when writing your essay or giving reasoning.
Mini-test. It’s quick, and gives you direct feedback. 10 questions, give it a go!
Revision notes. A really simple and easy guide to the key events leading to WW2 in Nazi Germany. Definitely worth a read, there are 6 pages of information so easy to digest.
