This dynamic presentation on the French and Indian War provides visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson. Bring the conflict that shaped North America to life!
The French and Indian War would impact the lives of many different societies living in North America and would put the continent on path that would eventually define the United States and Canada.
While other presentations in this series are focused on Canadian history, this presentation works well for both Canadian and U.S. history.
Topics covered include:
♦ The start of the war and George Washington's involvement
♦ Relations between the Native Americans and Europeans
♦ The escalation of the War
♦ Connection to the Seven Years' War
♦ British victory
♦ The impact on the various groups involved in the War
There are thirteen links within the presentation to Youtube. The videos total ~75 minutes. Youtube links are checked weekly and updated when necessary.
This lesson takes me approximately three 60 minute periods to complete.
