Card Sort: Munich Putsch - success or failure?

If you are studying Hitler’s rise to power then this card sort will help your students assess how far the Munich Putsch in 1923 was a disaster for the Nazi Party. 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.

When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a single page Microsoft Word document which includes a learning objective, instructions, two headings cards labeled success and failure as well as sixteen information cards to be sorted. At the end of the document there is an extension question designed to help consolidate the lesson. Finally, I have also linked in a video link to a clip from the film, Hitler the Rise of Evil, which could be used as starter to to recap what happened during the Putsch.

The aims of this lesson / activity are:

Theme: Hitler’s rise to power
Know: Why what happened during the Munich Putsch?
Understand: Why did the Munich Putsch fail?
Evaluate: How far was the Munich Putsch a disaster for the Nazi Party?
