This is a 50-slide PowerPoint slideshow of Mount Vernon and the estate grounds. You get a great overview of the entire estate grounds and some of the exhibits in the museum.
I also created a set of PDF posters that can be printed for your wall or used to project the images on a screen if you don't have access to PowerPoint. The presentation is suitable for all grade levels and all ages.
All of the photos were all taken by me while I attended the week-long Mount Vernon Teacher Institute, representing the state of Oregon. While there, we lived on the grounds of Mount Vernon and received world-class instruction on the subject of George Washington, Mount Vernon, and the history of the time. These are the photos and captions of the George and Martha Washington estate, Mount Vernon.
For anyone who has never visited the estate in person, this is a great way to get to see the magnificence of our country's first president's estate and grounds. Being there in person is better and maybe this slideshow will entice you to make the visit to Mount Vernon, Virginia. :)
