What are our Workshops like?
Many primary schools have chosen chocolate as part of their National Curriculum studies and children are learning about chocolate through the early years, usually 1-6.
As part of this study children will learn about the history of chocolate. Where chocolate originated from and the origin of the chocolate bean. The impact of fairtrade. Then the journey is shown on video and discussed from the bean to the chocolate bar using the items in the stimulus box.
This covers, subjects like Geography - (country where originated from) Also, the history of chocolate dating back to 400bc. Some aspects of Science are involved in the ingredients, food and nutrition and how the chocolate is made.
In the workshop, we discuss the literature content that has a chocolate theme, e.g. Charlie and The Chocolate Factory which is now on the must-read book list.
In secondary school's students are studying chocolate in Science and Food Technology. So, why not run a chocolate event during their study period or end of year Enrichment Week.
