Chocolate: A Short and Sweet History

Did you know that drinking chocolate was once made with chili and cornmeal, and served cold? In this fascinating worksheet, children learn about the history of chocolate, from its ceremonial use by ancient Mayan and Aztec people, to 1600s Europe, where it was enjoyed in cafés, all the way to the invention of the chocolate bars we recognize today. Students will then answer a few questions designed to help support their reading comprehension, before trying out a Mayan- and Aztec-inspired cold chocolate recipe.
