Chocolate money

  • Key Stage 3
  • Topical

Type: Activity
Learning Strategy: Case study
Topic: Reproduction

Europeans love chocolate – we eat over half the world's supply! The bad news is that we are eating more cocoa than can be produced and soon chocolate may become a rare and precious commodity as farmers struggle to meet demand. In this activity students apply their knowledge of pollination to discuss why cocoa yields on a plantation are decreasing. They then find out who funds scientific research by taking roles in a funding meeting – can they work out a deal where all parties will benefit?

The Chocolate money activity comes from ENGAGE, the EU-wide project from the upd8 team.
