This is a very good video explaining how to draw Lewis Dot Structures, calculate formal charge and draw resonance structures. You may want to elaborate on why electrons in Fr are loosely held, and you may want to compare Helium with Fluorine in terms of ionization energy to explain why the energy increases across the periodic table. Additionally, next time please proofread your video for errors, such as when you calculated CO2 to have 18 valence electrons instead of 16.
