This video worksheet allows students learn about the interactions of Cuba and the United States since the 1800s. The video clip is only six 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 current events, imperialism, or the Cold War. The worksheet helps students understand the current economic and political issues dividing the United States and Cuba. The video is great for visual learners and helps break 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.

The worksheet is labeled (Cuba and the United States History in Six Minutes Video Worksheet)
Students watch the video and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 14 questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. A QR code is also included for students. I recommend pausing the video at times to allow students to reflect and answer questions. The worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
