The French and Indian War

Lately in social studies we've been exploring various events that led up to the American Revolution.  So naturally we arrived at the French and Indian War.  Instead of just reading about the war we decided to spice it up a bit and turn it into a movie.  The students used the French and Indian War as the premise for their movie they were to review and create a poster for.  I was blown away by some of the posters and critiques these 8th graders came up with!  Through the posters and critiques it is clearly evident that these students understand the causes of the war, the outcomes, the consequences, and the aftermath.  Check out below some of the posters and movie critiques..enjoy!
