Chocolate!

Chocolate Challenge

Today we start our study of the DownloadNGo unit study/lapbook on CHOCOLATE! The lad's reaction when I told him what we were going to study was "YEAH!!" This study is done by Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett.

The outline of this study is as follows.
Day 1: Chocolate – What Is It?
Day 2: The Story of Chocolate
Day 3: The Types of Chocolate
Day 4: The Science of Chocolate
Day 5: Let’s Have a Chocolate Party!

I'm not sure if we are going to do this study by days as it is laid out of if I'll just pick and pull pieces out or what. Time will tell. Now to prepare a lesson. :)

we did day one and two, not in it's entirety.

we needed to use additional links because not all the links were working.

We practiced words like longitude, latitude and the equator. And all the parts of the rainforest.

We did some geography (made a map of the amazon rain forest), history (learned the history of chocolate), art (drawing and telling a story), social studies (studying the Mayan, aztecs, and zolatecs) and science (made tollhouse cookies).
