World War II
World War I was said to be the war to end all wars. So why is there another massive conflict only 20 years later?
Use the handout Causes Bullseye to help you investigate the causes of the Second World War:
- Research each of the topics listed on the sheet and take notes on how each played contributing role in the outbreak of war in 1939.
- Once all research is finished, complete the bullseye by marking it with letters A-F. The closer to the centre you place the letter, the more of a role you feel that it played in the outbreak of the war.
- Be prepared to defend your arguments
