In this post: Fun activities for the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Hello dear ones! February is not only the month of love. It is the month of chocolate, because what other food goes best with love? So Michael read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. By the way, here’s our “readbox” that I made at the beginning of the year. I keep forgetting to show you.
Michael read the book in a lil over a night. I was surprised. He was just so into it.
Candy Bar Measurements ~ So we did this math project but really it was just an excuse to eat chocolate. I’ll be honest. Michael already knows how to use a ruler well.
Measuring the candy
Then the best part…eating the candy.
Chocolate Study Lapbook
Michael did this quick lapbook on chocolate from: http://www.currclick.com/product/32954/All-Chocolate-A-Fun-Study
Lastly, we made this Charlie and the Chocolate Factory diorama.
Michael colored and cut out book characters. We got them at this site: http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/charlie-and-the-chocolate-factory-colouring-page
We used snow paint tinted brown, for the chocolate waterfall. Michael painted the grass green and a blue sky. Then we added green Easter grass on top. We used toilet paper rolls to make the bridge over the chocolate river.
We hotglued jelly beans for rocks along the river. I glued suckers together to make trees.
Then we made a banner with the name of the book.
I can’t tell you how much I love this diorama. It took some time but was worth it.
That’s our study. Here’s a pic of Michael doing school in his favorite spot.
