Add an element of fun to your Russian Revolution unit with this Anastasia Movie Viewing Guide and Research Worksheet!
This movie can be used as an introduction of the Russian Revolution and the viewing guide is designed to help insure that students are paying attention and thinking about the information presented in the film.
The Viewing Guide is two pages and splits the movie into four parts. (The parts are labeled for you on the Viewing Guide.) Once your students have completed the Movie Viewing Guide, they can move on to the Research Worksheet.
On the Research Worksheet, your students will be asked to compare certain events from the movie to the actual historical events and compare/contrast the movie’s portrayal to the historical events.
How the Lesson Works:
★ The Viewing Guide is split into four sections:
Part 1 - Scenes 1 to 9 (Ends after “Once Upon a December”)
Part 2 - Scenes 10 to 18 (Ends after “Learn to Do It”)
Part 3 - Scenes 19 to 28 (Ends after the reunion)
Part 4 - Scenes 29 to 36 (To the end of the movie)
★ The Review Worksheet is designed to be completed after students have viewing the movie in its entirety.
