This lesson is a must-have for any teacher looking to help students visualize the steps of Nazi expansion prior to WWII. By the end, students have turned a blank map into an information-packed resource. Easy-to-follow, no-prep...use as an intro lesson, stand-alone lesson, or even as an assessment.


*** Updated to include two other Europe map background options for better contrast


This download comes with the PowerPoint and a blank 1939 Europe map in both PDF and MS WORD format.


Students follow along on their own blank map of Europe to identify 15 key moments of the Nazi Expansion of World War Two. Of course, the list is not exhaustive, but frames the war well and serves as a great introduction or overview of World War Two. Enjoy!

Non-Aggression Pact with the Soviets

Various Nazi Invasions and annexations
