stART: Chocolate and how it gets from the tree to my mouth

 

 

So, I’m now eating some ridiculously healthy and delicious homemade chocolate that my friend made for the parents.  The kids ate chocolate chip cookies, the state cookie of Pennsylvania, and we got YUMMY homemade dark chocolate.

I took the little kid activity from All About Chocolate from Reading A to Z.  I printed an extra copy of the book and cut out the pictures for the kids to glue onto the sheets in order.  The older kids answered the worksheet that did the same thing.

So, that’s what the first page looks like.  As you can tell, it’s fairly simple, especially since this one was numbered.  That’s what it looks like in the factory process.

 

Now, the farm to factory looks a bit different.

Okay, so picture quality isn’t all that great, but that’s partially because I saved on ink by not printing it in the best quality.

 

If you print as much as I do you need to save on ink somewhere, and this is where I choose to do that.

 

So, that’s the last activity I have for Pennsylvania.

All in all, it was a great state study.  I’m learning more and more of how to structure this co-op, so it’s getting better and better each week.
