Reviewer Comments:

This comprehensive interdisciplinary unit is targeted to 5th grade and promises to be highly engaging. Students will participate in the preparation of various treats (chocolate-covered pretzels, hot chocolate, brownies, s’mores!) as they explore physical and chemical changes. Students begin classifying and graphing from the first lesson and use a variety of other scientific process skills throughout the rest of the 5-lesson unit. Students will read “The Story of Chocolate” and be responsible for presentations on the role of chocolate in various cultures throughout history. This unit is impeccably detailed and organized. It includes objectives and procedures, accommodations and enrichment, and all necessary student handouts, assessments and answer keys. The unit takes full advantage of teachable moments: from identifying the country of origin of various chocolates to tearing open the package of brownie mix! Objectives are aligned to Georgia Performance Standards, but can be easily applied to other state standards. Because this activity is quite food-focused, teachers may want to make provisions for diabetic students or students with allergies. Overall, an excellent unit!
