Everyone knows about Washington as a Revolutionary War Hero and as the First President but this is an interactive Web Quest about Washington before all of that.
It was created using the Mt. Vernon website as a resource. Students will learn about George Washington from a young age through his sparking the French and Indian War. The web quest explores Washington's life as a surveyor, his trip to Barbados with Lawrence and the battle that made him a hero in the French and Indian War. Also included is information about slavery at Mt. Vernon and fun facts about Washington.I give this to the students as a take home assignment and usually give them 4 weeks to complete it . It is very easy to manipulate but it is geared to students of advanced reading levels.
