    Becoming Human- First Steps: Video Reflection Activity

    This assignment is a Video Reflection of NOVA’s documentary about human evolution. The video is approximately 60 minutes long.

    “Nothing is more fascinating to us than, well, us. Where did we come from? What makes us human? NOVA's groundbreaking investigation explores how new discoveries are transforming views of our earliest ancestors.”

    This video is available on YouTube for free. The link to the video is included with the download.

    Several years ago I stopped using accompanying worksheets to videos I show in class. Too many times students are more focused in answering the questions, rather than absorbing what they are watching. But, I wanted the students to be actively engaged with the video. So, I started using “Video Reflections”.

    The video reflection handout has two columns on it. Student write what they have learned on the column on the left. They write down any questions they have on the column to the right. At the end of class, each student needs to tell the teacher something they learned, or a question they have.

    When given a choice, most students would rather have this type of assignment, compared to a worksheet.

    Neanderthals- First People of Europe: Video Reflection

    This assignment is a Video Reflection of National Geographic documentary about Neanderthals. The video is approximately 55 minutes long.

    “Neanderthals or Neandertals were a species or subspecies of archaic human, in the genus Homo, which became extinct around 40,000 years ago. They were closely related to modern humans, sharing 99.7% of DNA.”

    This video is available on YouTube for free. The link to the video is included with the download.
