Access the face-to-face and online teaching versions of this lesson plan exploring the theme of chocolate.


In the UK the average person eats a total of 14 kilograms of confectionery each year. A big part of that quota is chocolate!

If you are a big chocolate fan it may be one of the things you’re really missing by living abroad, or you may have discovered some new types of chocolate in your host country. This could be a nice way to start off this lesson about chocolate. You could also tie in some of these activities to a lesson about Easter. Chocolate Easter eggs are a part of the Easter celebrations for most British people. In the lesson, students list their favourite sweet and savoury food, take a quiz about chocoholics, do a simple reading task and a fun recipe dictation. Finally, they will invent their own new chocolate bar.


  • To learn vocabulary related to chocolate and baking
  • To practise speaking skills
  • To develop listening skills
  • To design a new chocolate bar

Is there any way the materials for online use can easily be converted back to PowerPoint?

These are excellent materials as are the other lessons that have been repurposed for online use. Thank you.


Thanks for the feedback and glad that you are finding our online teaching material useful. We have uploaded PDFS instead of Powerpoints to make the material as accessible as possible for all our users.

You might be able to use a converter to change them into Powerpoint depending on the operating system your are using if that's easier for you.

Hope that helps,
