A video guide to part ten of the History Channel's documentary Mankind: The Story of All of Us. It was originally designed for middle school students but could work for older students as well.The guide has eleven questions total - about one question every four to five minutes.
I try to pick important information for the questions and space them out so students must pay attention but do not have to write so much that they can't enjoy the video.
The Mankind: The Story of All of Us DVD set is available on Amazon or individual episodes can be purchased on iTunes.
