Before Thanksgiving Break, we sped ahead to the 1700's, where we zeroed in on the Seven Year's War - the conflict between France and Great Britain, and how this changed the landscape for colonists and Native Americans. We also briefly reviewed the regions of the Colonies - New England, Middle, and Southern.
