This video worksheet allows students to learn about the rise of Venice from the Dark Ages to the Renaissance. This is a simple and easy to use lesson plan. Have your students watch a great twelve minute video on the Venice and answer the questions. The video covers the history, geography, trade, and government of Venice. The video on Venice starts about one minute in because of a sponsorship commercial at the beginning.
The video can also be found on YouTube at:

Students will find the video interesting and engaging. From my perspective this is the best and most student friendly documentary about the history of Venice. I suggest pausing the video every six minutes to go over answers with the class and to discuss key points of the video. The worksheet has 14 questions and a teacher answer sheet is included. With discussion and answering of questions in class this video worksheet will take about fifteen minutes to a half hour to complete. This short video goes great with any lecture on Venice or the history of Italy.
