May 4, 2009 -
The Grade 4/5 students at Pius XII School received a surprise visitor on April 9, 2009. The students, who are currently reading Charlie and Chocolate Factory, wrote business letters to various chocolate companies such as Cadbury, and Hershey. The students were each given a product made by various chocolate companies and wrote letters asking questions about the product or providing their opinion.|
The letters were formally addressed and mailed out. A representative from Cadbury came to the grade 4/5 class to formally answer the student’s letters and provide information about the company and their products. It was a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about the products and the purpose for writing letters. As an added bonus the students not only learned about the product they had written about but were provided with treats and products that are made and sold by the company. The grade 4/5 class enjoyed the opportunity and were encouraged to learn that letters do get answered.
