A tasty new lesson plan from Kew Gardens.

Climate Change

A new lesson that highlights the importance of considering the ethics of everyday decisions is now available online.

In ‘the Chocolate Choice Challenge’ participants will consider terminology like ‘organic’ and ‘fair-trade’ in relation to buying a bar of chocolate. –they even get to taste some too!

To complete this activity participants, of all ages, decide which chocolate bar they would buy based on flavour. They are then informed of certain qualities (e.g. whether it is organic) of each sample and asked to revaluate their decision. In this way this lesson illustrates how seemingly simple decisions may have further reaching implications for people and the planet.


 You can download this lesson plan and others from the resources section of the INQUIRE website.
