I Like Chocolate
The Important Book

We began our chocolate unit by reading I Like Chocolate by Robin Pickering. This was our first internet project and we found it challenging but lots of fun! We began by brainstorming the various ways people can enjoy chocolate and we determined some of our own favorite ways. Being that our school places a large emphasis on health and physical fitness, we also discussed the importance of eating sweets in moderation and we made a list of healthy food choices that we liked. We then read The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown and decided that the most important thing about chocolate was to only eat a little. We wrote a class poem using the Important Book format. We also wrote an original poem about chocolate.
