I'm getting ready to start my chocolate unit next week. The unit lasts for two weeks (the most time I can use before state testing starts)! I don't know if your school has a no junk food ban, but we do. It really puts a damper on teaching a chocolate unit when you can't actually eat chocolate!
I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory aloud to my class during this unit, too. I bought the adorable graphics from Melonheadz that go along with this story. Can't wait to put them to good use (I already made a fun character trait analysis project to go with the characters from this story)!
Does anyone use either of these two stories in their classroom? Do you have any good ideas that you would like to share with me? Would you like to see some of my "chocolate-tastic" ideas in the coming weeks????
