Students read 2 primary sources (one on Washington's inauguration and one on his death) and answer 10 questions of varying difficulty. They then complete 5 creative tasks to fill in the gaps between Washington's inauguration and death, including a timeline, social media posts, and discussing the precedents he set (all expectations and instructions are clear in the handout). This can be completed by an individual, pair, or group and would be great for a sub! Answers are included where appropriate. This is related to the bundles and items linked below.
Sample questions and tasks include:
--Using your prior knowledge, why was Washington not inaugurated as President under the American Constitution until 1789?
--Describe the pomp and circumstance surrounding Washington’s entrance to New York City.
--Explain the first treatment attempted on Washington. Did it work?
--Write what you think his last Facebook status/tweet would have been on his last day as president…it must be 140 characters or less.
--Which precedent was most important at the time and why?
