This clever summative lesson uses the treaty to recall main events from the Weimar Period. Can they assess the treaty’s impact, then evaluate and improve a short documentary made by a world famous encyclopaedia company?
Starting with a competition, which teams can recall the most information about the terms from Versailles?
Next they have to remember what important events were affected by the Treaty? Having grouped this information, they go on to explain how exactly each event is connected with Versailles.
They then build on this knowledge to decide what a good one minute documentary at the Treaty of Versailles and its impact might include. Does the famous encyclopaedia companies short extract agree?
Clearly not, so their final task is to write a better voice-over.
