Product Description

The Presidency of George Washington No Prep Lesson: PowerPoint, Reading Passage, Activities, Quiz

This resource pack is a no prep complete lesson (GOOGLE version included!) about the presidency of George Washington that includes 3-5 days of materials. I will be adding an audio of the passage soon!

Includes: the important precedents George Washington set as the first president of the United States such as establishing the structure of the judicial system, creating a presidential cabinet, using the title "Mr. President," establishing the authority of the executive branch to enforce laws, & limiting a president to serving only two terms; the Judiciary Act of 1789; the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794; tensions between Alexander Hamilton & Thomas Jefferson; the establishment of Washington, D.C.; U.S. neutrality in the war between France, Spain, & Great Britain; Pinckney's Treaty of 1795; the relationship between the US & the Native Americans; & the threats Washington warned about in his Farewell Address.


Looking for something more comprehensive? The Constitution & A New Nation curriculum unit will be coming soon!
