This lesson aims to make studying the Versailles Peace Treaty much more accessible. The first part looks at how the map of Europe changed. The students then have to think why the Big Three had different ideas on how to treat Germany and through various images and video footage see what they decided and why they came to these decisions.
The terms of the Treaty are discussed and then shown how to be remembered using a chatterbox (a template is included). The final part analyses and evaluates a number of sources and their meanings. A recap plenary at the end of the lesson uses a spinning wheel which can be used in a competitive challenge.
