Leaders Changing the World

George Washington was the only president in United States history to have been unanimously elected.  
He was elected to the presidency twice.  
His presidency founded the United States Navy.  
He established the nation’s official money.  
George Washington created the Supreme Court.



Tutankhamun was only eight or nine when he became ruler of Egypt. Tutankhamun died when he was only 18.  
King Tut is well known because his tomb had everything in it when it was found.  
Along with a golden burial mask, King Tut's sandals were also found in the tomb. 
These had paintings of his enemies on the soles - so everywhere the king went, he trampled all over his foes!

    1. Lily,
      You are correct we only gave you 5 facts about each, but I need you to think about those facts. The prompt also said to "Use what you know!" What do you know after your great research on King Tut and from what you know about George Washington? Which one of these did more for history?

  8. I think that George Washington has more impact. I think that he had more impact because the passage said that he got elected twice. It also says that he made the supreme. The supreme court took a lot of work. I think that king Tut didn't do much impact because he ruled at very young age. he also died at a young age. George Washington defently did more. That is why I think George Washington did more impact. By Lilly Allen.

  9. This is about King Tut. I think he had the best history because to me it was amazing that he was eight or nine to to be ruler. I also thought when he was eight-teen when he died because that's that very young. I also like that he was well known for his tomb and it had everything when it was found ,it had the burial mask and his sandals.he had paintings of enemies on the soles. Everywhere the king went, he trampled over his foes!
