PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Common Core activity guides students through a read aloud, a science lesson, writing directions, and two math activities, culminating with making a cup of hot chocolate.

Students listen to a read aloud about hot chocolate, observe and predict how long it takes for a marshmallow to melt in hot water, a writing assignment (step-by-step directions), and two math activities (purchasing supplies, and a probability tree diagram). After completing the activities and planning, students are ready to make their cup of hot chocolate.

We start this unit by reading The Sweet Story of Hot Chocolate (History of Fun Stuff) by Stephen Krensky. This is an easy read story but explains where chocolate comes from and the history of drinking hot chocolate. There are other fun stories with hot chocolate, including: Hot Chocolate for Santa Claus by RC O’Leary; Hats, Gloves, Hot Cocoa with Love by Gretchen Archambault; and Lucky Pennies and Hot Chocolate by Carol Diggory Shields for a few ideas. We like to start each unit with a read aloud to introduce our topic and get a class discussion going about what our students already know.
