Card Sort: How did the Nazis keep control of Germany 1933 - 45?
This great little card sort gets students to look at the key factors to explain why the Nazis were able to keep control of Germany from 1933 - 1945. It can be used with a range of abilities and has never failed to get my students excited, engaged, whilst improving their understanding of the topic.

The resource includes three key factors - terror, propaganda and popularity, as well as 25 information cards which students sort to help them decide how the Nazis were able to keep control of Germany. As with all my resources, the document is in word so you can customise it to suit your own students by editing, adding or deleting cards / statements.
