This worksheet is to be used during the viewing of Liberty's Kids Episode 40 – We the People. This video can currently be accessed through YouTube at no charge.
Liberty's Kids is an animated historical fiction series of 40 episodes, approximately 22 minutes long, that describes the events of the American Revolutionary War through the eyes of 3 fictional children under the care of Benjamin Franklin. This series was originally broadcast on PBS.
This viewing guide contains 25 statements which students need to choose the correct word to make the statements true. People and events in this video include:
*General Washington to President Washington
*Convention to scrap Articles of Confederation and create the Constitution
*Creating the 3 branches of government
This episode has a lot of very important information. The movie guide for this episode is longer than the other movie guides that I have created. This guide has 25 questions instead of the usual 10. I read over the statements with the students before viewing the video. I also stop the video often and replay parts for students to be able to complete the worksheet since the information is presented rather quickly. The movie guide is fairly simple due to the importance of the content. I want the students to be able to use this as a study guide for a later assessment. You may want to revisit with the students the Articles of Confederation prior to watching the episode.
