This is a simple and easy to use lesson plan. Have your students watch a great 16 minute video on the Battle of Gettysburg and answer the questions. The video is from a series by the Civil War Trust Organization.
The video can also be found on YouTube at:
This video focuses on each day of the Battle of Gettysburg. Students will find the video interesting and engaging. From my perspective this is the best and most student friendly documentary about the Battle of Gettysburg. I suggest pausing the video every five minutes to go over answers with the class and to discuss key points of the battle. The worksheet has 24 questions and includes a teacher answer sheet. With discussion and answering of questions in class this video worksheet will take about a half hour to complete. This short video goes great with any lecture on the Battle of Gettysburg.
