Today we got to read chapter 3 of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
This chapter was all about how Mr Willy Wonka once built a castle completely out of chocolate for Prince Pondicherry.
The children had a selection of 6 different types of chocolate. They had to complete a science investigation to find out which type of chocolate would be the best to use to build Prince Pondicherry's castle.
Which chocolate type do you think is best?
Next we had to write up our science investigation. We had to pose a question that we wanted to find out, record the steps to take to complete our investigation, what we were going to keep the same and also what we were going to change in our investigation.
Finally, it was time to put our chocolate outside and see what happened. Luckily, it was a 33 degree day so it didn't take long for us to notice changes.
Lastly, we were able to see if our predictions were correct. Most of us thought that dark chocolate or milk chocolate would last the longest but that was first to melt. The Bubbly chocolate some thought had more structure therefore would be nice and strong but the bubbles soon melted. Others thought the Top Deck chocolate with a mixture of dark and white chocolate would be best- it did hold its shape for longer but the milk chocolate below melted too quickly.
The verdict: We finally came to the answer of our investigation! Caramello chocolate stood the test of the 33 degree heat and that is the chocolate we would build a castle for Prince Pondicherry.
