French & Indian War

This lesson teaches students about the French and Indian War, with a focus on causes and consequences. Students will review how European competition for colonies, fueled by the economic theory of mercantilism, set the stage for a showdown between France and Great Britain over North America. Comparisons are provided of how the differing missions of these two nations in the way they settled North America demonstrate Native Americans likely willingness to help the French succeed: French fur trappers with a small population and trading alliances with the Natives - English settlement of the 13 Colonies with a hunger for land for agricultural use. Students will learn about the involvement of the following major players in the conflict: George Washington, General Wolfe, and William Pitt. The following events and content are also covered: Fort Duquesne, Fort Necessity, Albany Congress & Plan of Union, Siege of Louisburg, capture of Quebec, the Treaty of Paris, Pontiac’s War, and the Proclamation Act of 1763. The consequences of the conflict are a focus of this lesson. Students will learn about how losing the French as an ally led to Pontiac’s War / Rebellion. How the Albany Congress would set the tone for colonial cooperation in rising revolutionary calls against the British. And most importantly how the taxes placed on the colonies as a result of England’s debt would lead to the “Road to the American Revolution.”
