In the Hands of a Child Chocolate Curriculum is a wonderful curriculum set that we used in our home school (grades 3, 5, and 8). All of my children really enjoyed it and it was easy for all of them to work together on the projects. We also added a few of our own projects, expanding on the base curriculum with no problem.
It is affordable by making use of the local library for the suggested reading, using Netflix and Hulu for some of the suggested movies, and by just being creative in the kitchen!
This curriculum as well as many others are available through www.handsofachild.com. Which also offers a freebie curriculum and such. Through the month of Feb (2013) The Chocolate Curriculum is also free via homeschool.com 's Freebie February event.Diana, thank you so much for sharing your experience with In the Hands of a Child Chocolate Curriculum. The unit study sounds yummy! Other parents will find your comments helpful, especially those looking for easy-to-do, hands-on unit studies for their whole family. We love In the Hands of a Child Lapbooks too! Blessings, Heather :)

Hands Of A Child Homeschool Curriculum Review
by Nancy Jozwick
Hands-on Homeschool Curriculum
If you are looking for a homeschool curriculum that is "Learning Made Fun", Hands of a Child is it! Hands of a Child (HOAC) is a lapbooking curriculum. Lapbooking is similar to scrapbooking; it is very hands-on and FUN!
I began using this curriculum about eight years ago. We decided to homeschool but did not want to do the "school at home" book stuff. One of the things we liked most about HOAC is that they are written so that you can use them with pretty much any grade you are teaching with very little adjustment. So you can purchase one lapbook and use it for several grades. We used it totally for everything except English and Math for which we chose to do traditional books.
I totally love the way HOAC is set up; they offer the lapbooks in several different forms. You may order a hard copy or an ebook and print it off yourself. This is what I prefer because I can download it in a matter of minutes after ordering. You can order complete kits or you can do them yourself. You choose what you want to study and when, so if your child decides they want to learn about a specific subject, you can order that. You do not have to order a certain number of lapbooks at one time. Pick and choose; that makes it more fun for everyone!
The cost is one of the most economic homeschool curriculums I have ever used. You can purchase one lapbook and can use it for any number of children or grades!
HOAC offers a super membership where the perks are too many to describe! One of the best perks; they offer free lapbooks to members.
PLUS you will not find a more dedicated group of ladies that are so willing to help you in anyway they can! The customer service is far above any that you could ever need or desire.
Check them out!
