The French & Indian War Movie Posters & Critiques

One of the best parts about looping is that you go through two years before you get back to the same curriculum again.  I like this because the content stays fresher and doesn't become boring or tedious (as it probably would if you were teaching the same thing every single year).

Two years ago I blogged about our French & Indian War projects.  Being a huge movie buff, this is one of my favorite projects we do in social studies, so I was super excited about getting to do it again this year.  This project called for students to turn the French & Indian War into a movie; they had to design a movie poster that fit the "plot" of their movie, and then write a critique that summarized the "movie" and gave their opinion on the movie as well.

Once again, these students amazed me!  Their creativity shined brightly in the posters and critiques they were able to produce!  Here are some of the rockstar movie posters and critiques this 8th grade group did.  Enjoy!

  1. Third poster is the Battle of New Orleans, during the War of 1812, not the Seven Years War. George Washington was not involved in the War of 1812.
