The Chocolate Trade Game

Standard

This afternoon, Y5Wo transformed into chocolate bar producers, from the farmers who grow the beans right through to the shoppers buying the finished product.  We worked through 4 seasons and at the end, we compared the amount of money made at each stage of the process by those involved.  The results were shocking!
