I taped numbered pod photos to bottom of a table. They took turns rolling die, identified the number and then crawled under the table to find and remove the cocoa pod with the same numeral. We counted out that many chocolate chips!
We made "Sweet Letters", I taped two cups together to pretend it was a cocoa pod. I placed chocolate chips inside the cup and explained that a cocoa pod has seeds that make chocolate inside. They took turns using tweezers to remove the chocolate and place on letters J, M and D.
They created a "Bean to Bar" book. We stapled the pages together and they placed the photo cards inside.
