This is a complete 50 minute 6 station lesson on George Washington’s Presidency. There is a handout provided that students carry around and complete at each station, which is clearly labeled to keep them organized. This lesson is designed in Word and can be adapted to fit your classroom. This is a print and use stations lesson! No need to modify unless you want to 🙂 The class period goes so fast with stations!


⇒ Station 1: Foreign Policy

⇒ Station 2: Hamilton’s Financial Plan

⇒ Station 3: Precedent President

⇒ Station 4: Whiskey Rebellion

⇒ Station 5: Video about his legacy (need internet access)

⇒ Station 6: Political Cartoon

Helpful Tip:

⇒ I highly suggest printing the station handouts on different colored paper and put them in folders to keep them organized so every year you have them ready to go!

⇒ I give my student’s 8 minutes a station with a minute passing time to complete a 50 minute class period, with a few extra minutes at the end of the lesson to discuss the main ideas from the lesson.jj
