This lesson helps students to understand the beginning of Apartheid in South Africa. The lesson aims to teach your students the reasons behind the rise of the National Party and how they were able to come to power and introduce apartheid in the first place. 

It begins with an activity using a cartoon source from the era. Students have to discuss and try to decipher the message of the cartoon source and what it means. Then they have to try and work out a link between what the cartoon shows and why the National Party was able to gain so much support in the 1940s and 1950s in South Africa. 

The main task involves students filling in an information table about the rise of the National Party and key individuals like Daniel Malan and General Hertzog. This is based on information posted around the room in a information gathering exercise or 'room round'.  
You can cut out chunks of information from the provided text for this. It is arranged in paragraphs that can be easily cut out. 

Contains:
- Powerpoint
- Information handout sheet
- Fill in table work sheet
- Answer table for the teacher

You could finish the lesson with the class answering the big question from the title.
