Individual or Paired Task
After reviewing the terms of the Treaty, decide where each of the following words belong in the grid:
Saar | Colonies | Rhineland | Alsace-Lorraine | Polish Corridor | Reparations | Armaments | War Guilt | League of Nations
Compare your ideas with a partner, then as a class. Be prepared to explain your choices and explain accordingly.
