In this activity students perform research on the consumption and production of chocolate and the related socioscientific issues.
Students perform data measures and estimation/calculations connected to the topic of chocolate. They investigate how a production process works and address the issue of child labor.
Discussing socioscientific issues prompts students to use different types of discourses, knowledge (school subjects), values and emotions. Furthermore, this specific task prompts students to evaluate how to contribute to a better and more fair world and to think about their own contribution.
