SKU: T34IL405002

In this ready-to-teach lesson, your Year 3 or Year 4 children will find out how the cocoa bean arrived in Europe. They will discover how it was initially used to make a luxurious drink for the wealthy, but after a time, the first eating chocolate was produced.

The included slideshow presentation for the teaching input goes through some key information about how chocolate first came to Europe and how it quickly spread in popularity. During their independent learning time, your class can then write a diary entry about the arrival of chocolate from the point of view of a particular historical character.
