This set of graphic organizers is designed to help organize student learning of the Seven Years’ War. The organizers touch on the most important aspects of the war and as worksheets are good supplements to your classroom teaching.
The topics, in order, are:
1) The Background of the Seven Years’ War;
2) British and French Colonies in North America;
3) French and British Military in North America;
4) Historical Figures of the Seven Years’ War;
5) Role of the First Nations Peoples;
6) Fort Duquesne and Louisbourg;
7) The Siege of Quebec;
8) The Battle of the Plains of Abraham;
9) The Treaty of Paris 1763; and
10) North America after 1763.
I have numbered the pages in order as they appear in the Table of Contents, but in some cases, you could switch the order if that suits your lesson planning. I have also tried to provide as much information as possible for the answers keys, but again, you as the classroom teacher can decide what is relevant for your students.
The activity (page 11- the importance of the Seven Years’ War) is related to an excellent article found in the National Post archives which can be accessed here: http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/02/07/mark-bourrie-the-war-that-made-canada/
Due to copyright, I cannot include the article in this resource, but you as a teacher can copy it and use it with your students. I highly recommend you make your own copy of this article after you purchase the resource, as internet accessibility can change.
I have designed the activity so that students do NOT have to read the article but I would highly recommend it as a reading supplement for your students and would work well with the page 11 activity in this resource.
I have also included a follow-up activity if the students do read the article - basically it is having students evaluate what they think were the most important outcomes of the war and then rethinking their choices after they read the article. There is no answer key for this extra activity as the answers are subjective.
I have included answer keys for the ten graphic organizers.
