This video guide contains eight questions for students to answer while watching episode seven (“World of Weapons”) of the History Channel documentary Big History. Episode seven looks at the history of weapons, especially focusing on the idea that human weapons have allowed us to strike from ever-larger distances.
There is also a discussion, story, or essay question for the students to answer after they view the video (it can be easily adjusted to fit any of these). My goal was to have questions that run the gamut of Bloom’s taxonomy. I use the last question as an assignment to meet the writing component of the Common Core.
An answer key is included.
Why so cheap? My other video guides sell for 99 cents per episode. Since these episodes are half as long, it seemed fair to price them at half the usual amount. Once the season concludes, I will offer all episodes from this season in one package at a discount. Look here for a link when that time comes.
