Teaching Idea #2 – Games

Chocolate Touch Teaching Ideas

In the “Games and Activities” section at Book Units Teacher, students can play Concentration or Hangman with candy bars photos, and words. I recommend increasing the size of your monitor screen for easier viewing.

A Hershey Kisses online cloze reading activity creates fun results. Students type descriptive words and phrases in the blanks. They then click a button to see their completed stories. Print these for a fun classroom display.

Another link takes students to an article with interesting facts. Students can figure out which chocolate candy bars are the most popular by sales. They can even learn how many licks it takes to get to the center of the Tootsie Pop.

Teaching Idea #3 – Using Vivid Imagery

Chocolate Touch Teaching Ideas

This free printable is provided for teachers. Students compare two types of chocolate. I love using the Hershey Miniatures. Students eat chocolate while completing the chart. I encourage students to use descriptive phrases. Vivid imagery such as rich creamy texture, mildly sweet, silky smoothness, or crackly crunch works best. Students turn the completed charts into comparison paragraphs.

Teaching Idea #4 – Chocolate Activities

Eating chocolate is also a must. Check out the newly updated “Chocolate in the Classroom” section of the Book Units Teacher website for ideas.
