Do you remember the days when a cup of coffee cost five cents? At A.W. Dennett restaurant in 1894, you could buy a five-cent cup of coffee and as well as a five-cent slice of pie to accompany it. The menu from that year is a primary source for an interesting lesson plan that could be a fun English language arts or social studies addition to a math unit about money. First or second graders will enjoy the activities that include: reading aloud a food-themed picture book, reading a historical menu, and designing a menu. The resulting menus could be used in a learning center or make a fetching classroom display.
