Activity Overview


The Treaty of Ghent was signed to end the War of 1812. The concessions it outlined and the effects it had on history are important for students to understand as they study the War of 1812 and the aftermath, as it had major implications for the future of Great Britain’s control over North America and Native claims.

Using a spider map, students will answer the 5 Ws and detail the major components, effects, and stipulations of the Treaty of Ghent. This will allow students to explain and reiterate the full effect of the war and understand how and why treaties are formed.

Students will answer the following questions:

  • WHO was Involved with the Treaty of Ghent?
  • WHERE did the Treaty of Ghent Happen?
  • WHEN did the Treaty of Ghent Happen?
  • WHAT did the Treaty of Ghent Say?
  • WHY was the Treaty of Ghent signed?

Extended Activity
