Minister of Chocolate visits Year 4

Minister of Chocolate visits Year 4

Monday saw the arrival of the Minister of Chocolate in the Lower School.  A work shop was given on the aspects of the Cocoa Tree and the fruit and bean, along with a short history of chocolate production from the Maya to Columbus and Cortez.  The boys were fascinated with the sensory testing of chocolate, it did take a while to understand that it is not all about taste! 

 

The boys also explored how advertising and packaging is connected to chocolate bars and selling them, designing some very futuristic wrappers.  Finally all the boys got to bake their own Chocolate Fridge Cake.  The boys had a great day and thoroughly enjoyed getting their hands on and tasting their chocolate creations.  Well done Year 4!
