An analysis worksheet prompting students to read and analyze objects using twenty questions. Included are sample objects for analysis, including: The Key to the Bastille, Martha Washington's shoes, George Washington's Field Bedstead, and a Surveyor's Compass.

The “20 Questions” series worksheets from George Washington’s Mount Vernon are designed to guide students in a structured exploration of new primary sources. Each set of questions moves from concrete observations to an analysis of the source’s relationship to people that lived in the past. The last questions ask students to make larger conclusions about the culture of the time to inform a final writing prompt. Included with each worksheet are primary sources from George Washington’s world.
