Card Sort: Nationalist & Socialist Aims of the Nazi Party in 1920
This great little resource makes an excellent starter, plenary or even a homework for students studying the aims and objectives of the Nazi Party when it was renamed the Nationalist German Workers Party in 1920.

This activity is designed to appeal to students of all abilities and has a stretch and challenge question at the end which can be used either as a discussion point or as the focus for a written task.

The resource includes two heading cards which briefly explain what is meant by a Nationalist and Socialist in the context of Germany in the 1920s and 12 statement cards taken from the 25 point programme produced by the new Nazi Party in 1920.

Students are instructed to cut out the cards and organise them under the two headings. Depending upon the class, it should take no more than 10 - 15 minutes to do the card sort.

The aims and objectives are:

Theme: The Rise of Hitler
Know: What were the aims of the Nazi Party in 1920?
Understand: Which ideas were Nationalists or Socialist?
Evaluate: Why would these aims appeal to the German people?

WILF - What Am I Looking For?
Identify & describe: The aims of the new Nazi Party in 1920
Explain: Which ideas were Nationalist or Socialists?
Evaluate: Why would these ideas attract the support of some German people?
