Cooking Up History with the Founding Presidents is a fun…and TASTY…way to learn about our first four American Presidents and their First Ladies! These extraordinary men and women shaped our nation and set countless precedents for future American Presidents and First Ladies to emulate.
This lively, four-week micro-study will introduce your family to George and Martha Washington, John and Abigail Adams, widower Thomas Jefferson, and James and Dolley Madison. In the process, you will get to know each of them while learning about the history and politics of their times. To further whet your appetite, your kids will learn to cook one of each of these four president’s favorite foods!
Once-a-Week Micro-Studies (Grades 1-8) offer the same great quality you have come to expect from Once-a-Week Unit Studies, but provide your children with a thorough understanding of the study topics in only three, 30-minute assignments each week!
In keeping with Homeschool Legacy’s mission of making serious learning fun, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies provide students with creative and engaging assignments, each designed to get them excited about learning. Our digital Micro-study format provides the added benefit of linking you to online educational resources to further enhance your micro-study experience.
As with Once-a-Week Unit Studies, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies also typically suggest an enjoyable classic or award-winning family read-aloud that pertains to the study topic.
Originally designed to be done slow-and-easy over a 4-week period of time, Once-a-Week Micro-Studies are also flexible enough to complete in just four days! That makes them the perfect alternative to “school as usual” and a valuable supplement and co-op resource. Once-a-Week Micro-Studies, and their activities included within, also make for a fabulous planning guide for hosting a fun, backyard summer camp! Either way, you’re sure to make serious learning FUN!!
