The Chocolate Touch

— feeling greedy
The Chocolate Touch - Patrick Skene Catling, Margot Apple

I love The Chocolate Touch it is fun to read and students can not wait to predict what turns into chocolate next. John Midas lets his greed for chocolate get the best of him and in return chocolate betrays him. A fun activity would be to have students decide if they would love to have everything they touched turned into chocolate or if they would hate it. Then the class would be split into two teams and debate the pros and cons of having everything they touched turned into chocolate, supporting their claims using evidence from the text.
