Differentiate your lesson on the presidency of George Washington with this set of three engaging choice board menus. Students are able to research a variety of resources to learn precedents set by George Washington, the creation of his cabinet, putting down the Whiskey Rebellion, development of Hamilton's financial plan, taking a stand with the Neutrality Proclamation, and his Farewell Address to the American people. They then apply that learning to complete a variety of activities of their own choosing to earn 6 total points.

The choice board menus can be used as a stand-alone activity to lead students through learning about Washington's presidency, as a supplement to instruction, for homework or extension activities, or as an assessment.

Twenty-seven different activities are included within the three differentiated menus, including creating infographics, making a cabinet today, developing a crossword puzzle, analyzing a soundtrack of songs for an event, and creating a rap battle. Additional choices include rewriting song lyrics, making a quiz, writing a newspaper article, introducing Washington's "starting lineup," developing a time capsule, and many others.
