This week the whole school project is all about Chocolate. The project aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn about the history of chocolate, where in the world it comes from and to use their Maths, English and Science skills . You can take the project in any direction you wish, you can write down your research, make chocolate cake, create things using your Art and DT skills, create a project book, PowerPoint or even film a chocolate advert.
Below are some ideas to get you started but the world is your oyster!
History and Geography
Some ideas to get you started.
- Design and make your own bar of chocolate! What shape would it be? What flavour would it be? What would the wrapper look like? How much would it cost?
- Make a giant 3D chocolate using paper mache/cardboard.
- Create a quiz about chocolate. Test your friends and family on their chocolate knowledge!
- Research how chocolate is made from bean to bar.
