This video worksheet allows students to learn about the impact of the French Revolution in a fun and creative way. The video clip is just three minute long, but 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 French Revolution. The worksheet helps students understand the importance and impact of the French Revolution. 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 this short engaging video and have a better understanding of the French Revolution because of it.
