Because the French and Indian war took place over large swaths of territory, there are several important forts, people, and other locations that students will encounter when studying this event. In order to help mitigate confusion and allow students to better understand each aspect, students can use a spider map to illustrate each person, location, or event.
In this activity, students will choose one of the major figures, battles, or terms of the French and Indian War to research. Following their research, students will create a spider map that reflects the description of the term chosen and the significance of it on the French and Indian War. Have students ask meaningful questions to show the term's importance.
Students may also benefit by creating a spider map that contains more than one term, person, or location. As an alternative to this assignment, students can identify and describe each thing in one cell. Alongside the illustration they create, the completed spider map will provide a quick reference for students to look back on.
