The Role of Nazi Women in Germany - Outstanding Lesson

The Role of Nazi Women in Germany - Outstanding Lesson

This is one of the of the most memorable lessons the students will study about Nazi Germany. It is both interesting and fun in equal measure. This is really two lessons (or a double) that covers the changing role of women in Nazi Germany before the war, during the 1930s and in WW2. Lesson 1 - contains a lot of information about Nazi policies towards women including a 'True or False' Quiz, some sources from prominant Nazis and an exam question with a mark scheme. Lesson 2 - The real fun is in lesson two where the students will have to work as a team to draw the perfect Nazi women. They do so by passing their drawings along every 30 seconds and adding to each others drawings. It is a fun, interesting, memorable lesson that the students will be talking about long after the lesson is finished. Download these lessons! Seriously you won't regret it. :-)
