Chocolate: A gift from the Spanish-speaking world
★ The perfect activity for Valentine's Day! ★
This PowerPoint present will walk you and your students through the beginnings of chocolate as we know it -- as it was discovered and developed by the peoples of Mesoamerica, as it spread to the rest of the world after the arrival of Spanish explorers, and the state of things today. Chocolate has been an integral part of Hispanic culture for thousands of years, as you'll learn from this presentation. This product also comes with guided notes for students to complete as they follow along, as well as an answer key.
What you will get when you buy this product:
→ A 23-page PowerPoint presentation with beautiful pictures
→ Two pages of guided notes and reflection for students to complete
→ An answer key
→ Suggested follow-up and extension activities
This product is perfect for Valentine's Day, but can easily be used any time of the year in a Spanish or Social Studies class. It is culturally and academically relevant, as it ties in the history of the Olmecs, the Mayans, the Aztecs, the Spanish explorers, and more. It also touches on the current-day controversy regarding the use of child labor and unsustainable cacao-growing practices. The presentation and notes are in English, making it perfect for beginning-level Spanish students, a substitute, or a Social Studies classroom.
