Activity Overview


In this activity, students will create a timeline representing the events leading up to, during, and following the French and Indian War. For each event, students should include the significance of each event and create a representation of these events. Students should include at least one event that occurred before the war, during the war, and after the war in order to have a timeline that reflects the full span of the conflict. By creating this, students will be able to see the sequence of events of the war, as well as place it into a wider historical context.

For an alternative to the timeline layout, have students create a timeline poster to incorporate into a presentation or gallery walk. You can add more than one template to this assignment to give students lots of options, and update the instructions accordingly.
