Class Experience

Students will be able to explain where chocolate comes from.
Students will be able to Compare and Contrast Chocolate in the past with Chocolate of today.
Chocolate has a rich and interesting history which I have researched and learned. This class combines two of my favorite things Chocolate and cultural history. I want to take students on a journey back in time to the very first cultivation of chocolate and up to modern day cultivation and uses. I want to share my curiosity around this subject and build the same in children.
