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.
