This video worksheet allows students learn about the Atlantic slave trade and slavery. The video clip is only five minutes long, but it is packed full of information that will keep your students engaged.

This video worksheet works great as a “Do Now Activity” or as a complement to any lecture or lesson plan on the slavery. The worksheet helps students understand how the Atlantic slave trade forever changed the world. The video is great for visual learners and helps breaks up class time so students are more focused throughout the entire period. My students love these short engaging videos and have a better understanding of world history.

This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is hand out the worksheet to the students and play the video from the following website below. You can also download the video right to your computer from the website.
