Our chocolate has been eaten…

Now that the chocolate project is over, we would love to know:

What was your favourite part of the project?

What would you like to do again?

What would you differently?

How are you going to remember what you have learnt?

What did you learn that you didn’t know before?

As part of our ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’ topic we will be learning how the eye works. These videos may help you.
They go into more detail than we will learn, so don’t worry if you find some of the information tricky to understand.
