President Washington Video Lesson


The video teaches students the major events of Washington's Presidency and how his actions set precedents for all future presidents! They learn about he could have been made king but refused, his election, his efforts to unify the nation, the debate and fight over Hamilton's Financial Plan and the Bank of the United States, the formation of the first political parties and how that worried Washington. It then covers Washington's Neutrality Proclamation to keep the US out of the European wars, how he successfully ended the Whiskey Rebellion, and finally his Farewell Address and his lasting message for the nation to keep the nation at peace and unified.

***The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
