To learn about the causes, major events, and results of the French and Indian War.
2 class periods
Each student reads background information about the French and Indian War in a section entitled A Brief Summary of the War.
They will then read the directions for doing a writing assignment about Fort Duquesne and the Battle of Quebec. Once the stories have been written, a few volunteers can be given the opportunity to read their story to the other students, and earn some extra credit points.
The lesson concludes with class members doing a Map Exercise (which I have found they always like to do!), and then answering questions that follow.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
