This is an activity that uses a fun subject to teach kids about the process a product goes through before it gets to the consumer. It gives students the chance to read some background info on why chocolate is important in our economy. There are tips for how to carry out this lesson (step by step) as well as video links and student samples. Included in this product: 2 background sheets about how chocolate is made and who depends on it, a graphic organizer about how much it costs to produce a bar of chocolate, a mini flip-book template, a persuasive paragraph sheet to use key vocabulary words, tips on how to use the product, and student samples. My students loved studying about a fun topic and learned some surprising information at the same time!
