A video guide to part twelve 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 twelve questions total - about one question every three to four minutes. The last question is at the very end of the video.
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.
Episode description from the History Channel: Mankind builds increasingly complex systems, feeding billions of people, reshaping the landscape and re-engineering the human body. Modern food cultivation enables population explosions while uranium enables incredible destruction. Mankind travels to the moon and performs heart transplants. Globally, people continue to struggle for civil rights, equality and peace. 100,000 years ago there were a few thousand hunter-gatherers on the African savannas. Today there are 7 billion of us in every corner of the globe.
