Hands-On History

During the final week of the second semester, Mrs. Cirone's AP US History class participated in a fun post-AP exam cooking project. Students worked together in groups to make delicious foods adapted from historical recipes and traditions. The recipes were called Monticello Muffins, Jackson Jumbles, Susan B. Anthony Apple Tapioca Pudding, Nineteenth Century Summer Waffles, Temperance Punch, and Bimetallism Cake.
