Chocolate Bar Wrapper Design


This was a total fluke lesson which turned out really well. When I was away from school at a conference one day, I left the dvd "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" for the Grade 7 class to watch. When I came back, I had them design their own wrapper for a chocolate bar. They had to include a name, a catchy phrase to promote the bar, and list the key ingredients. I gave them a template I found online that you simply cut out, fold and glue. Students used coloured pencils, markers and collage. Some that finished early wrapped a piece of cardboard with tin foil and stuck it inside the wrapper. 
Great job everyone!

Dear Miss,
This was a fantastic media project for my secondary 1 students. You helped me a lot. Once again. I'm a big fan. Seriously.
I upgraded it a little bit, adding a big context amongst my classes. Each class will have to choose the 3 best bars of another class. The big winner will have a surprise (chocolate?). A fun way to include appreciation in class! Well, we'll see.
