It may not belong to Willy Wonka, but Singapore does have our very own chocolate factory. Our Year 2 students recently got a chance to visit the factory as a learning field trip. As part of the IPC Units of Learning – ‘Chocolate’, the students made a trip to Lemuel Chocolate, where they went through a 2 hour ‘Intro to Chocolate for Kids’ workshop.
During the workshop, the students learnt about the chocolate making process, painted their own chocolate bars and made their own truffle balls! Read on to find out what went on during the workshop.
Fun fact! Did you know that scattering cocoa hulls in the garden helps to increase soil vitality and retain ground moisture?
It was a messy affair but the students enjoyed the hands-on activities so much that the workshop was filled with laughter. Students also competed to see whose chocolate truffle is the roundest.
The students had so much fun while learning throughout this field trip. We hope to be able to bring students on more field trip lessons to enhance their learning and pique their curiosity.
