    Science - teeth and healthy eating
    literacy - charlie and the chocolate factory
    history - history of chocolate
    geography - where do the ingredients of chocolate come from
    DT - making and selling chocolate

    Does anyone have ideas or links to suitable planning, displays, resources.....?

    Fair trade issues.
     
  6. Maths - chocolate tasting and recording preferences, then use for data handling
    Literacy - writing letter to a chocolate factory to persuade them that they should be employed as chocolate tasters
    ICT - designing packaging for new chocolate bar
    There are some good films on You Tube if you search for 'how chocolate is made'.
     
  7. Hi,
    Im a secondary school sen teacher and really like this idea for some of my weak pupils. I am intending to try to teach them more cross-curricular topics so this is an excellent topic.
    If I make any resources for this, I will definitly share them with you.
    Thank you for the idea (sorry for stealing it)

  8. I am currently completing this topic with my Year 3 class. We have ***** Wonka's chocolate river for our learning journey wall. Each week we put up a piece of work to show how their learning has progressed.
    I know this is a late response, but I thought others may appreciate the idea.

    We'll be using chocolate as our science topic in Y4 (solids and liquids) and also in Maths - seeing how much a choc easter egg costs and then melting it to see how much it is per gram compared to 'normal' chocolate.

    I reckon you can pretty much do the whole curriculum via chocolate - although as we are in WW2 for the real topic then I shall have to focus on rationing!!
