Learners will learn about cocao trees and their climates, the history of chocolate, the way chocolate is processed into the candy we are used to eating, the different kinds of chocoate and how they differ, as well as the medicinal uses for the entire plant.
The teacher is a chocolate lover, but beyond that, she has taught about chocolate for years in a GATE pull-out program. She has also participated in the chocolate making process while in Central America and will show video of how it is all done.
Learners are encouraged to bring their own chocolate and talk about why they love it.
