The Sweet Truth

The Sweet Truth The Sweet Truth

Students in Mrs. Wilkerson's fourth grade ELA classes at Glade Elementary school spent a couple of days tasting various kinds of chocolate as part of their chocolate unit on the novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  While reading

informational articles and viewing videos about the history of chocolate, the students tried the various flavors of chocolate.  They created graphic organizers for each type before writing an essay comparing and contrasting the variations in taste, color, texture, etc.  The students agree that choosing a favorite is a matter of personal preference.  However, we all love CHOCOLATE!
