NOVEMBER / CHOCOLATE: FROM BEAN TO BAR

DECEMBER / MOLECULAR BIOLOGY & DNA NECKLACES

NOVEMBER: Chocolate - From Bean to Bar

Chocolate has been a delicious part of people’s diets for more than 4,000 years. It’s been used to appease the gods, defend against illness, show love, celebrate holidays, ward off scorpions, and sustain warriors. Our study of chocolate involves science, math, history, social studies and cultural awareness. The activities will instill an appreciation for the history and development of cocoa and chocolate. Students will learn the how cocoa is grown and how different types of chocolate are produced. They will discover the health effects of chocolate and cocoa and the many ways it can be used in cooking. Students will be encouraged to experiment with chocolate and cocoa in different recipes.

DECEMBER: Molecular Biology & DNA Necklaces

Students will be introduced to molecular biology and will extract their own DNA. They will be able to see the normally invisible substance of life and begin to comprehend the meaning of their own genetic makeup. Students will employ the same real-world laboratory procedures used in biotechnology research to extract DNA from their own cheek cells, then precipitate and bottle it in a cool necklace. Students will not only learn about cell structure and genetics but they will take home the most AWESOME Christmas gift ever!
