This video worksheet allows students to learn about the Winter War between Finland and Soviet Union from 1939 to 1940. The video clip is only three minutes long, but it is packed full of information that will keep your students engaged.
This video worksheet works great as a “Do Now Activity” or as a complement to any lecture or lesson plan on the Winter War or World War II in general. The worksheet helps students understand Soviet expansion during the first year of World War II. The video works well for visual learners and helps break up class time so students are more focused throughout the entire period. My students love these short engaging videos and have a better understanding of World War II.
This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is hand out the worksheet to the students and play the video from the following website below. You can also download the video right to your computer from the website.

The worksheet is labeled (The Winter War in Three Minutes Video Worksheet)
Students watch the video and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 8 questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. A QR code is also included for students. I recommend pausing the video at times to allow students to reflect and answer questions. The worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
