Looking for an engaging STEM activity when teaching the French and Indian War?
Use this resource to get students using STEM in the social studies classroom! When teaching the French and Indian War I include this activity as an extension activity and my students love it! Watch them work together to build a fort and learn about George Washington. Students are always amazed when they find out George Washington unofficially started the French and Indian War and how his mistake change history.
I provide students with 20 plastic straws, tape, and play-doh to build their fort.
What is included?
-Fort research worksheet with student reflection
-Famous Failure: George Washington and Fort Necessity reading and STEM Challenge
-Material for stem activity can be edited
