Chocolate Class Assembly - Extract

Children dressed in Mayan costumes come on stage. They act out drinking the cacao seeds beverage; they all appear to be enjoying it, accept one.


The history of chocolate began as far back as 1900 BC to 1500 AD in Mesoamerica which is modern day Mexico and Central America.


The Mayans who were the people who lived there used cacao seeds - the raw unprocessed version of cocoa. They made a drink out of it!


(Singing and rubbing their tummies) Yummy, yummy, yummy, I've got love in my tummy.

MC 1

(Spits out the drink) Yuck! It tastes so bitter!

MC 2

Don't do that! The gods will put a curse on us if you do that. Cacao seeds are a gift from the God of Wisdom. Besides, it has special healing powers, don't you know! (gives him clout) Let's hope it makes you a bit more cleverer!


But it's disgusting

MC 2

( pulls MC2 by his ear)

Exit stage.


The Mayans really did believe that cacao beans were sacred. They thought it was the food of the gods. They called it "xocoatl". Whether rich or poor, the Mayans drank xocoatl at all weddings and religious ceremonies.


In 1502 an Italian explorer with the help of the Spanish monarchy, stumbled upon cacao beans when he raided a Mayan ship.
