Our French and Indian War lesson plan teaches students about the causes, effects, and lasting impact of the French and Indian War. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a group to use what they’ve learned about the French and Indian War to answer questions about the war, its causes, and its effects. Students are also asked to work independently to answer factual questions about the French and Indian War, demonstrating their understanding of key facts.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the cause of the French and Indian War, explain how it set the stage for the American Revolution, and describe the effects of the war on America.
