WW2 Dictators

WW2 Dictators

A whole lesson with worksheets and fully differentiated that compares Tojo, Hitler and Stalin. Pupils identify what a dictator is and who the three men are They describe/explain how a dictator is able to rise to power Compare similarities and differences between the three men Evaluate who changed the most things in their country and why we remember their atrocities rather than the positive changes they made to their countries. I use this as an introduction to a unit on WW2 to provide pupils with some context into the political landscape of the world prior to the start of the war.

Year 6 WW2 Guided Reading Activities

Year 6 WW2 Guided Reading Activities

KS2 Year 6 World War 2 Guided Reading Activities Three texts linked to WW2 with comprehension questions. I have also included the sheet I used to encourage the children to make up their own questions, considering what type of question they’re asking. Anne Frank Background Blitz Report The Lion and the Unicorn(scanned book with questions on most pages) I used these in whole class reading sessions where children took it in turns to read the text to the class before we discussed the questions. They were then given time to record their own answers.
