To learn about the causes, major events, and results of the French and Indian War.
2 class periods
Each student will read the background information about the French and Indian War in the section entitled A Brief Summary of the War.
Each class member will then read the directions for doing a writing assignment about Fort Duquesne and the Battle of Quebec. Once the stories have been written, give a few volunteers the opportunity to read their story to the other students, and earn some extra credit points.
Class members will finish the lesson by doing the Map Exercise (which students always like to do!), and then answer the 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.
