We may never know if the first president really chopped down that cherry tree or not, but the story provides a lesson about not lying. There is over a page and a half of informational text. There is also a color picture of a cherry tree orchard on one page and a single cherry tree on the second page. The reading strategy is for students to look back to the story to answer the 10 literal comprehension questions in the fill-in-the- blank format. The third page is the answer key. This mini-lesson, “George Washington Could Not Tell a Lie” will go well if you used it along with my other Presidents’ Day lesson, “Abe Lincoln Loved to Read.” This product is a word document that you can easily modify if necessary and easily print off.
