Card Sort: Hitler's / Nazi Party Aims & Beliefs
This great resource is designed to be used as a starter or plenary for students looking at the aims and ideas of Hitler and his Nazi Party in 1933. Its designed to be a quick 10 or 15 minute activity and would be suitable for lower school students studying this topic or foundation students at GCSE or upper school.

Students are given eight headings cards which include Jews, education, opposition, economy, Treaty of Versailles, women, dictatorship and race as well as eight information cards which they need to cut out and match out. I've also included a stretch question on 'pick two of Hitler’s ideas and explain why you think 43.9% of the Germany people would have voted for the Nazi Party in 1933?

Once completed students could use the card sort to write an essay or produce a mind map on the topic.

The aims and objectives are:

Theme: Germany 1918 - 1945
Know: What did Hitler and the Nazi Party believe in 1933?
Understand: How did Hitler want to change German society if they were elected?
Evaluate: Why did 43.9% of the German people vote for the Nazis in 1933?
