What alliances were made at the beginning of World War 2? 


Today, you will continue in your role as Secret Service Agent and identify the alliances that were made at the beginning of the war. You will investigate into the reasons behind these alliances and learn a little more about the leaders of the different countries who made them (particularly European countries). By the end of the lesson, you will be able to use a map to identify which country worked with which, which countries decided not to join the war at all and which countries were invaded early on which meant they had no choice. This information will help you to build up more arguments for and against going to war. This will help you to write your letter on Friday.
