The girls LOVE hands-on learning, especially if it involves chocolate. What girl doesn’t love chocolate? Right?
When I told the girls we were going to review this book, they were excited! “Does this mean we get to use chocolate mom?” Um yep. “Can we eat it?” Yes, AFTER the lesson.
The Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Multiplication book is not only a math book, it is also an art book. One could use this book as a unit study by itself including math & art.
This would be a fun project with beads. Bear decided to make her own math art.
0x0=1 Hershey’s Bar? Ok, so apparently we are not understanding the Zero Property of Multiplication.
We ended the lesson with learning about square numbers. We had 48 squares of chocolate, so we only completed up to 6 squared.
Overall, even though we liked the concept of using chocolate for math manipulative, this book can be overwhelming. The combination of art & math together is somewhat confusing.
Ultimately, the girls decided they don’t like this book after all.
