I loved reading “The Chocolate Touch” by Patrick Skene Catling with my students and making connections to the story of King Midas of the Golden Touch. These extension activities compliment a Midas-Themed unit and include options for differentiation.
This unit indludes:
-Chapter retell forms for “The Chocolate Touch” –two versions for differentiation
-“Describe the Character” forms- two versions and optional character traits list for differentiation
-Venn Diagram for “The Chocolate Touch” and “The Golden Touch” with a separate list of choices to use if needed
-“Central Message” form for “The Chocolate Touch” and “The Golden Touch” with a separate list of choices to use if needed
-“Brainstorm” form for students to pre-write for their own Midas-themed story
-A list of additional suggested resources
