This activity can be used as an introduction to the Korean War, or as supplemental information on the Korean War, or as a fun activity to present information about the Korean War in a different way.
I found that my students had little knowledge of the Korean War - and most of the videos that I came across were dated, and not interesting to students, that is until I found this collection of mini-movies on the History Channel.
This activity guides students through one article with questions and 5 mini-movies about the Korean War - specifically focusing on the following topics through animation, actual footage and survivor stories of this time period.
*The Slog of War
*Peace (between N. and S.)
*Other events happening during this time period (in the U.S. and globally)
*Truman vs. General McArthur
*Veteran's recall the War
*Role of Chinese and Russia
This is a nice mix of videos for students to explore and learn more about the Korean War. The information is presented fast, so I have students complete this activity on their own - watching the videos either solo or with a partner using their own devices or laptops.
Link to movies is provided on the document.
