The lesson is suitable for 7 July (World Chocolate Day) or can be used as a stand-alone lesson.
In this lesson students do a few reading activities where they read about different stages of the journey and they learn where most/least of their money goes. They are ‘paid’ by the teacher in squares of chocolate, so that they actually feel the unfairness of the system. They finish with a discussion on the injustices.
- To celebrate World Chocolate Day on 7 July

- To develop speed reading skills
- To extend students’ oral fluency in discussions
