Great Presidents explores the culinary preferences of each former president of the United States. We’ll begin by identifying the three branches of government and particularly explore the executive branch. Starting from 1789 to 2021, we'll discover what region of the U.S each president comes from and how each culture bought different ingredients to the presidential kitchen. Upper grades will identify and compare the different viewpoints, challenges, and accomplishments of each president. We’ll take a look at each president's time in the White House and learn how historical events influenced what they ate and how presidents directed the nation. Learning the various meals eaten during each president's time in office is a great way to connect the past with the current world helping students connect social studies, food, and history into their daily lives. This program has visuals and interactive cooking actives for all students and informative facts to build students' interest in exploring history. Chefsville’s virtual programming with Zoom combines lessons, images, maps, videos, cooking demonstrations, and equipment to explore the connections with math, science, language arts, and social studies to cooking.
