We went to an activity day last month that was amazing - all about chocolate
We looked at cocoa beans - their nutritional content, how they taste and what they are used for.
we then shelled them and made a traditional Aztec hot chocolate drink,
The kids made chocolate plums and bananas,
did a taste survey to see if milk, dark or white chocolate was their favourite and compiled the results in a bar graph.
They learnt all about the cocoa harvest and which is the right colour pod to harvest (not brown like we all thought),
looked at where it's grown, how it is harvested, discussed fair trade and had to place pods on the giant world map for places where it is grown.
They finished off with a chocolate fountain as a treat.
