George Washington's presidency set the nation on a path that has sustained the United States for over 200 years, longer than any other republic in history.
This complete unit covers the Washington presidency. The unit begins with an introduction about leadership and a true-false "quiz" about Washington - separating fact from fiction.
The unit continues with lessons on domestic policy and foreign policy of Washington, including problem solving activities for both!
The unit concludes with a differentiated reading of his farewell address. A quiz with answer key is included as well.
All documents are editable for you to address the needs of your own student population. Handouts and quizzes were created in word and accompanying slide shows were created in MS power point.
Typically, this unit takes about four days - one day for the introduction, one each for domestic and foreign policy and then a day for the farewell address. There have been times when the leadership introduction on the first day could take an entire period though - some kids get really into it! Also, the writing activity to accompany lesson on the farewell address could either be assigned as homework, or could be used as an in-class writing assignment.
The beauty of this unit is you can make it work for you depending on how much time you have!
