Assault on Fort Carillon

The French and Indian War is often referred to as “the war that made America”; teaching the importance of this turning point episode of our history takes on more significance for students as they engage in experiential learning. With Lake Champlain as the starting point for this learning experience, participants will be immersed in the life of an 18th century inhabitant during the re-enactment of the Assault on Fort Carillon (Fort Ticonderoga). Participant experiences will include period dress, foods, political discussions, music, the examination of artifacts, spending a night in a French and Indian war camp (air mattress, sleeping bag, floor mat suggested) and as a soldier during the re-enactment, participants will have the opportunity to fire a musket

Emphasis will be placed on incorporating the CCSS for English Language Arts and literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical subjects into this character based learning experience. Participants will be expected to develop a content area lesson plan and cross-curriculum applications implementing Living History methodologies.
