Product Description
As the first President of the United States, George Washington set a path for future leaders of the nation. His term in office was chalk full of "firsts" as well as some crisis. His cabinet members feuded and he used force to quell a rebellion. After choosing not to run for a third term in office, Washington gave the country a few things to ponder in his Farewell Address.

This lesson uses a PowerPoint presentation that gives your students a glimpse of what occurred while Washington was in office. It touches upon debt, infighting between Jefferson and Hamilton, and the Whiskey Rebellion. Students complete a graphic organizer that includes "cloze"-type reading, definitions, and questions. The lesson highlights the terms precedent, inaugurate,and excise tax.

In addition to the PowerPoint and graphic organizer, students will read a summary of Washington's Farewell Address and answer questions that go along with the reading.

I use this as a lead in to my Jefferson and Hamilton lesson. Please check it out in my store!
