A video guide to part three 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: Huge engineering projects help spark intricate cities that transform the lives of millions of people. The spread of Christianity and other religions reveals the increasing interconnectedness of mankind. The greatest mega-city on earth, Rome, becomes an engine of expansion while China builds an empire on the other side of the world. A vast network of roads and shipping lanes allows goods and ideas to flow across three continents. Mankind is connected like never before—this is the birth of globalization.
