In this yummy earth science activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners use fudge to learn about different kinds of lava. Cooking and cooling the fudge in different ways simulate the formation of two different kinds of lava: pahoehoe and aa lava. Although this was designed as a pre-visit activity for a workshop about Earth processes, it also makes an excellent stand-alone activity.

To understand how fossils are formed, students model the process of fossilization by making fossils using small toy figures and melted chocolate. They extend their knowledge to the many ways that engineers aid in the study of fossils, including the development of tools and technologies for determining the physical and chemical properties of fossilized organisms, and how those properties tell a story of our changing world.

In this activity (on pages 23-29), partners use the Plant Traveler Cards, along with a world map and map worksheets, to follow plants such as cassava, chocolate and coffee that grew first in one part of the world and then spread to other parts. Learners also write a story about a plant traveler of their choice, and should be encouraged to use art supplies to enhance their maps. Tracing the global migration of plants teaches world geography, in addition to how humans have helped transplant crops.

In this activity, learners discover that sand is the major ingredient in glass. They carry out a guided investigation involving chocolate to see what happens when heat is applied to a material that appears solid at room temperature. They learn that glass has special physical properties that allow it to be formed into many different and beautiful objects. At the end, learners can eat the outcomes of the investigation! This activity is featured on pp.32-34 of the "Fireworks of Glass: The Art of Dale Chihuly" unit of study for grades 3-5.

This lesson plan aims to make students pay more attention to what they eat: to think about the ingredients, how to understand them, and how they are processed to create industrial food products.
Chocolate is the focus of this lesson plan; similar learning goals could also be achieved by using different foods, adapting the educational resources available here in an appropriate way.

These resources have been developed in the Europeana Food and Drink project ( www.foodanddrinkeurope.eu ) .

In this activity, learners explore the history of making objects from glass and artistry of Dale Chihuly. Learners visit an online "hot shop" to discover how glass is transformed into works of art and create a virtual "Macchia" or a special glass form that Chihuly invented. They investigate the way that Chihuly uses drawings to design his sculptures and create their own sculptures by combining smaller parts to make a whole. This activity is featured on pp.35-38 of the "Fireworks of Glass: The Art of Dale Chihuly" unit of study for grades 3-5.

In this activity, learners use chocolate to explore how the Sun transfers heat to the Earth through radiation. Learners compare the melting rate between chocolate left in the sunshine and chocolate left in the shade outside for twenty minutes on a hot sunny day. Use this demonstration to introduce learners to solar radiation as well as the importance of summer safety and sun protection. Although this works best on a hot sunny day, this activity can be adapted for indoor use.

In this activity, learners make edible T. rex teeth (with adult assistance). The treat is a white and dark chocolate covered banana on a stick. The white chocolate represents the tooth and the dark chocolate represents the strong part of the T. rex tooth. While learners wait for each chocolate layer to cool, they must count the Cretaceous Period by fives all the way to 65 Cretaceous million years ago. This activity is featured on page 41 of the "Dinosphere" unit of study for K-2 learners.
