Year 4’s Chocolate Day extravaganza was a great way to celebrate the half way point of our Chocolate investigation for Topic. In groups, we learned about Mayan culture and the history of chocolate. Students were kings, peasants, crop owners or slaves, looking at how the people lived in a society very different to our own. On a lighter note, we took to the cooking studio, whipping up a batch of Chocolate Crush Slice. Our measurements when weighing the chocolate were a little generous. To finish the day, Mayan masks and headdresses we made, thinking about the materials available to a society without metallurgy. A great day of fun and learning to celebrate our unit.
