The Sudeten Crisis and Munich Agreement, 1938 (ESCAPE ROOM)

The purpose of this lesson is to enable students to explain how and why appeasement was failing though an escape room / chronology style activity.

Hook: Students to enter and will have some knowledge recall questions and extension source to complete straight away so there is no wasted learning time. Students receive this as they enter the class from another student or the teacher. Teacher takes feedback and introduces the lessons intentions and aims.

Main task: Students work as a class or in 2 teams if a large class to locate the hidden time-line of events starting with appeasement and finishing with the German occupation of the Sudeten Land. Students will have 15 minutes (timer and dramatic music included in the PP!) to locate all the hidden events and arrange the time-line into chronological order outside of the classroom. Initiates collaboration / communication and element of competition. if students beat the clock they can be rewarded.

The correct order can then be gone though on the PP with 2 embedded videos to show throughout to help visualize and consolidate the story. students can then receive a ready made time-line.

students use this knowledge to help them evaluate sources of evidence linked with the Munich Agreement and appeasement. Sources to be printed out and stick on A1 paper with varying levels of challenge questions linked to GCSE. suggestions in the PP. students can circulate the room evaluating the sources before teacher takes feedback.
