Skills: Cause, Consequence, Source Evaluation & judgement

What Am I Looking For this lesson?
Identify / Describe – What problems faced Japan in the 1930s?
Explain – Why did the Japanese invade Manchuria?
Analyse – begin to form a judgement on why the League eventually failed?

This resource includes information, maps, photographs from the time, primary and secondary sources, Oxford & Cambridge past paper questions and student mark schemes for peer and self assessment.

These resources can be easily adapted. This resource works extremely well with my assessment for learning booklet on the League of Nations.

Kind Regards
