This is a video guide to part three of the History Channel's documentary the Ultimate Guide to the Presidents. It was designed for middle school students. The guide has eleven questions total - about one question every four to five minutes.
Part 3 is entitled "A House Divided" and covers 1849-1865.
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 Ultimate Guide to the Presidents is available on Amazon and can can be purchased on iTunes.
Part one is available for free here:Ultimate Guide to the Presidents Part 1: Assume the Position (1789-1825)
