Product Description

This video focuses on the problems George Washington overcame in crossing the Delaware River, defeating the Hessians at Trenton and the British at Princeton. The video does a great job of explaining the importance of the Trenton Campaign. Students will find the video interesting and engaging. From my perspective this is the best student friendly documentary about the Battle of Trenton and it is only twenty-seven minutes long. With discussion and answering of questions in class this video worksheet will go perfectly with a forty to sixty minute class period. The video worksheet includes twenty-six questions, an answer sheet and a QR code if you want to have students work on it independently. Finally you can always download the video right to your computer hard drive by using http://keepvid.com/
