These 12 great video worksheets help cover the Constitution and government of the United States. My students enjoy and are engaged by these simple to use four minute video worksheets. Most importantly, they helped increase student knowledge and understanding of government.
Each video worksheet works great as a “Do Now Activity” or as a complement to any lecture or lesson plan on government. Each worksheet guides students through problems or events faced by the Founding Fathers and other groups of people. The videos are great for visual learners and helps break up class time so students are more focused throughout the entire period.
This activity is very easy to use. All you have to do is hand out the worksheets to the students and play the videos from YouTube. You can also download the videos right to your computer using Keepvid.
Students watch the videos and answer the questions on the worksheets. Each worksheet includes about eight questions and has an answer sheet for the teacher. I recommend pausing the video at times to allow students to reflect and answer questions. The worksheets can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. You can use the worksheets individually or all at once during a class period. I recommend breaking the video worksheets up over the course of your government unit. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
