The Presidency of George Washington
Deadline, March 7, 160 Points
What challenges did George Washington face?
How did his example shape the future of America?
The first president of the United States set a powerful example for those who followed. He created precedents, or strong standard examples, that set the course for America for the next century.
The Constitution organized the national government, but just what that government would look like was, in many ways, left to George Washington.
He brought in advisers, or a Cabinet to help him run the new nation. Often the members of his Cabinet disagreed - strongly.
At the same time Europe was again being torn by war. How would this affect America?
This is the story of creating a nation.
Students will identify and describe the steps Washington took to create a new and effective national government.
