This video worksheet allows students learn about the impact of Vikings in a fun and creative way. The video clips are a total four minutes long, but are 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 Vikings. The worksheet helps students understand the importance and impact of the Vikings. The videos are great 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 the Dark Ages and the Vikings.
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 websites below. You can also download the video right to your computer from the website using Keepvid.
(The Vikings - In a Nutshell)
(The Vikings – 10 Interesting Facts)
The worksheet is labeled (The Vikings in Four Minutes Video Worksheet)
Students watch the video and answer the questions on the worksheet. The worksheet includes 12 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 worksheet can be used to generate classroom discussion or be used as homework. Feel free to modify this assignment as needed for your classes.
