Do you love Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Do you want something SO fun that your kids will be talking about it all year? Need a parent involvement activity? Then I think you will enjoy Chocolate Tank.
No, your kids are not dunking you in a tank of chocolate. Although that does sound fun!! Chocolate Tank is an idea that is based on the TV show Shark Tank. Your kids are going to create their own one-of-a-kind, brand new, never before seen candy. The crazier the better! Their job is to convince Willy Wonka and a few Oompa Loompas that this new candy is so awesome that it HAS to be Wonka's latest creation.
Your kids will work on persuasive essays, public speaking, handwriting, and tap into their creativity all at the same time!
This can be done in your classroom just with your kiddos or can be used as a parent involvement activity where you invite parents to be your participating "audience" to cheer and encourage your little inventors on.
Please be sure to check out my blog post about this to see how I used this activity and inspire you as you plan your own Chocolate Tank!
I have everything included in this:
* Lesson Plan
* Photos with my notes from my Chocolate Tank
* Link to my blog to see my kids in action Chocolate Tank
* Parent Invitation letter (bw/color)
* Writing graphic organizers (6)
* Writing Conference graphic organizer
* Parent Sign in Sheet
* Inventor Rubric (this is for your panel, should you choose to score your kids on their projects and presentations)
* Seating Sings (audience and inventors signs to designate where everyone should sit in color/bw)
* Cotton Candy Panel Banner
* Bubble Gum Welcome to Chocolate Tank Banner
This was so much fun and I think your kiddos will love it as well!
