Product Description
Milton Hershey: Are you studying inventors and inventions, more specifically, are you studying Milton Hershey? Do you love interactive notebooks? If so, this passage and interactive notebook flippable activity will work perfectly for you.

If you do a chocolate unit in your upper elementary classroom, this passage will work perfectly for that too.

Why do I think you will love my passages? I work very hard to research the information. I try to include a lot of info. and not leave gaps in history like some textbooks do. I try to write passages on one topic, so that it is easier for upper elementary to digest. I have been told I have a writing style that makes the topics easy to learn. I have taught the information for twenty years, PLUS... a bonus is that I confer with my husband who has taught US History for nearly twenty five years and has a Master's degree in US History. I can assure you that we make a great team when it comes to US History!

This passage covers details about Milton Hershey, and it touches on the following: his childhood, becoming an apprentice at a printing company and then at a candy company, failed attempts at opening his own candy company, success with a caramel company, selling the caramel company to invest in a milk chocolate company, becoming a successful chocolate company, marriage and humanitarian efforts by he and his wife, building a community for his employees of his chocolate factory, giving his fortune away, and more!

This passage will work as a reading or social studies lesson. It can be used to introduce Milton Hershey or even to review details about life before test time.


The passage is copied as a booklet style, meaning you will print on the front and back of one page. Students will then fold the one page booklet, so that there is a cute cover. When they open it up, they find the passage on the inside. It will glue perfectly inside their notebook.

Once the passage is glued in their notebook, they can glue the flippable in the notebook. The flippable has 5 questions that go along with the passage.


Milton Hershey can be covered in the Georgia social studies standards as part of inventions and inventors. This passage was written with 4th-5th graders in mind, but it could be used with students beyond that grade, as well. Even if you are not a teacher in Georgia though, it will work perfectly, as they are non-fiction and don’t include anything specific to the state of Georgia.


Please... if you ever notice anything in my passages that needs to be corrected, such as factual information, please send me a message before you rate the product. I do my best to research thoroughly and provide historical facts. I can look back over and have a new copy uploaded fairly quickly.

Also, if you notice typos or anything else, that is appreciated too. Even with several sets of eyes looking over my work, at times a word can be missed. Thanks so much ahead of time.


I appreciate each and every person that supports my love of creating fun activities.
