George Washington Unit Study
Part of our third-grade curriculum this year is to review the Presidents of the United States. I have created this printable to use to follow along with these posts. You can find the rest of the presidents (once posted) and the sign up for email reminders below.
George Washington was born on February 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County in the Colony of Virginia. He was homeschooled. A popular story about Washington involves him as a young boy having chopped down his father cherry tree. When questioned about the tree, he told his father “I can’t tell a lie, Pa”. He held jobs as a surveyor, a planter and as a soldier. He married Martha Dandridge Custis in 1759. In 1775, Congress appointed George as the commander of the newly formed Continental. Elected in 1789, Washington served as the first president of the United States of America. He served two terms as president from 1789 to 1797. He did not have a political party but did represent Virginia. On December 14, 1799, George passed away in Mount Vernon, Virginia. George Washington has his face carved on Mount Rushmore and his portrait is also on the quarter and one-dollar bill. He is called the “Father of His Country”.
