Not only did George Washington lead our new country to independence, he is also
considered to be one of our greatest presidents. No one had ever been president
before and almost everything that President Washington did set a precedent, or
example, for other presidents to follow. In this assignment, students will do the following:
1. Look over this list and choose two of Washington’s accomplishments that you feel are the most
2. Use pictures (use very few words, if any) to symbolically represent these accomplishments. Draw the pictures within the picture of George Washington.
3. Outside of this picture, write down why you chose these two accomplishments as the most important.
Write two paragraphs, one for each accomplishment that you have chosen. Each paragraph should be at least two paragraphs long.
