Both the French and British forces during the French and Indian War were fighting for control of territory, but that was one of few commonalities between them. In order to understand the greater outcome of the war, students will find it helpful to compare and contrast the actions of both sides.
In this activity, students will create a storyboard grid that compares and contrasts the French and the English during the French and Indian War. Students will research and describe the leadership, relationships with Native Americans, fighting styles, and outcomes from the Treaty of Paris. You may ask them to compare other elements and topics as well!
To extend this activity, students will compare and contrast two Native American tribes that played a role in the French and Indian War. Students can research the European alliances, fighting styles, the regions they lived in and any other topic that the students found significant.
