I don't know about you but while movies can be a great lens for studying history (both World and US) I don't have the time (or an administration) that would let me show an entire movie in class. This activity allows me to show important clips from Band of Brothers that helps provide my students with a greater understanding of World War II. It ensures that they aren't just passively watching but are rather actively thinking and analyzing the clip.
Clips from three different episodes from Band of Brothers and one from the Pacific are analyzed (both interview and scene excerpts) and a wrap activity was also included. This is one of my favorite activities to do all year and my students love it. They enjoy it because we are watching clips from movies and I love it because it actually engages their mind, they practice analytical historical skills, and we discuss each item after we watch that clip.
I have used this activity in both my US and World History class. An answer key is not included since a decent amount of the questions ask students to put themselves into the scene and how they would feel.
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as I and my class do!
