A video guide to part two 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.
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: Rogue pirates plunder the Mediterranean coast, signaling on-going conflict between newly emerging societies. But the discovery of iron and its incredible uses helps mankind create new ways of life. Armed with metal tools, humans construct new societies and amazing vessels. Early forms of government, including democracy in Athens, help guide us. Humans develop monotheistic religions including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. People power shapes the world, as warfare continues to divide us.
