This could be presented a few presidents each day in February as part of a President's Day unit or all at once. Also good for Women's History Month; who knows anything about most First Ladies?
Make some or all of the presidential favorites! Recipes are all extremely simple and easy to prep and make.
Take a vote on which recipes to try!
For older students, allow them to choose recipes to prepare in small groups and then have them present information about their president and share the dish with the class!
