George Washington's Breakfast

Did you know George Washington ate three Indian Hoe Cakes and drank tea for breakfast everyday?

Together as a class, third graders recently read George Washington's Breakfast, by Jean Fritz, discovering many facts about our nation's first president's life.

On Shrove Tuesday, the students celebrated with a George Washington-themed "Pancake Tuesday," complete with white linen tablecloths, silver candlesticks, and china. Polite table manners were on display and conversation consisted of the day's politics, just as it would have been for George Washington.
