Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Superpower Relations L5: What were the main reasons for Soviet expansion?

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Superpower Relations L5: What were the main reasons for Soviet expansion?

Students assess the reasons for Soviet expansion into Eastern Europe, such as percentages deal. They rank factors, create an annotated graph before producing a map showing how the countries of Eastern Europe became Soviet satellite states., leading into an 8 mark (narrative exam question). Easy to follow, with a step by step guide. The map activity requires use of a textbook (I have made reference to the Pearson textbook for this activity, although other textbooks include the map referred to).
