Learn about chocolate with this complete SPANISH-language lesson plan from the history and origins in Latin American pre-Columbian cultures to the contemporary candy bars we love! Students learn about the process of growing cacao trees, drying and roasting the beans, mixing it with sugar and ending in the chocolate we know today.

Student and teachers enjoy this very thorough unit, with a stunning power point of different photos (with teacher script), differentiated readings (3 levels!) and comprehension questions, geography mapping activity, practice reading charts, and much more! This unit is in the Spanish language.

1) K-W-L chart about Chocolate

2) The Story of a Chocolate Bar: Minibook that explain how cacao grows on trees in the rainforest, and finally gets poured into molds to make candy bars.

3) 11 Gorgeous Photos in a Power Point with Teacher Script. First used by the Aztecs and Mayans in what is now Mexico, we learn the history of chocolate and then how it is processed from cacao beans through to chocolate bars.

4) Chocolate Brainstorming Sheet

5) History of Chocolate + Comprehension Questions (3 different levels)

6) Geography Mapping Chocolate Activity to explore where chocolate has come from and where it is now: practice labelling the continents, equator, and other locations on a world map

7) 2 different activities to read charts and answer questions (a pie chart and a bar graph)

8) Book and Video list to extend learning

9) Chocolate Tasting Activities and Recipe
