Fourth & Fifth Grade
Askinosie Chocolate is involved in every unit of study of the fourth / fifth grade classes of Boyd Elementary School. The students learn about the business methods of Askinosie Chocolate and feel like they are part of the business as Chocolate University students. They come to the factory and get hands on experience in ways that no tour of the factory would offer. When Shawn Askinosie travels to origin countries he emails the students, sends updates and photos, and answers questions. Upon his return Shawn visits the classroom to discuss the journey. Chocolate University funds are used to send the children on field trips outside of Springfield.
