Secret Lives of Past US Presidents

Perhaps making the subject more entertaining will encourage students to learn more about US history:

Grover Cleveland: Time Warrior

What most people know about Grover Cleveland is that, alone among U.S. Presidents, he served two non-consecutive terms of office. Less widely known is the reason those terms were non-consecutive. After commandeering an experimental time travel device from a young Nikola Tesla in early 1889, Cleveland spent the better part of the next four years traveling through the past, righting historical injustices. Below he is pictured during his extended stay in the late Cretaceous period.

Great. They're going to think that the Titanic was just a movie, but that Cleveland was a time-traveler.

Then again, maybe they'll learn the terrible truth that Teddy Roosevelt actually killed Death when it came for him on March 4th, 1909, and that the former President had to take Death's place. This is why it's incredibly important not to mock TR, else he may come for you.

When Barak Obama traveled time
to the year 3010
He beat the evil robot king
And saved us all again

from that south park movie song 'what would bryan boytano do?'
