Product Description
This activity can be used as an introduction to the Vietnam War, or as supplemental information on the Vietnam War, or as a fun activity to present information about the Vietnam War in a different way.

I found that my students had little knowledge of the Vietnam War - and most of the videos that I came across were dated, and not interesting to students, that is until I found this collection of mini-movies on the History Channel.

This activity guides students through 7 mini-movies and an article summarizing important events/dates/places about the Vietnam War - specifically focusing on the following topics through songs, animation and actual footage of this time period, factual information and articles.

Topics included:
*Viet Cong
*Domino Theory
*Gulf of Tonkin
*War Protests
*Tet Offensive
*Vietnamization
*My Lai Massacre
*Kent State
*William Westmoreland
*Chicago Seven
*War tactics
*Weapons of War
*Soldiers Stories

This is a nice mix of videos for students to explore and learn more about the Vietnam War. The information is presented fast, so I have students complete this activity on their own - watching the videos either solo or with a partner using their own devices or laptops.

You could easily thin out this activity for what your class time allows.
Link to movies is provided on the document.
