This video worksheet allows students to learn about Karl Marx and the origins of communism. The video helps students better understand the impact of Karl Marx on the modern world. The video is great for visual learners and helps break up class time so students are more focused throughout the entire period.
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 video would work best with high school because of the content.
The worksheet is labeled (Economics: Karl Marx and Communism in Six Minutes Video Worksheet)
Students watch the video and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 8 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.
