This is a fun book. However, I am unsure how a chocolate lesson would happen with students of any age. I see it being messy and the students eating before we even get started.
It does seem like a good and effective activity that would help the students understand fractions.

The chocolate bar is made up of 12 bars; therefore, it teaches fractions up to the twelves. Each page introduces and explains each fraction with a cute explanation.

I saw from the teachers' websites that they make paper chocolate bars that are just as effective in teaching fractions. They also are detachable so it goes along with the book. I see that they also could be made instead of bought. Then at the end of the lesson I would give them the bite size chocolate bars.
