In this lesson students will learn and share information about the impact of sugar on our health.
They will establish their current knowledge of the topic in a stand-on-the-line barometer activity, then work in groups to investigate information and data on the impact of consuming too much added sugar on the human body. They will create an infographic poster to display the information, then participate in a gallery walk to read and provide feedback on each other’s infographics. The lesson will conclude with a Think-Feel-Do visible thinking routine, providing students with an opportunity to reflect on their new understanding of the impacts of added sugar on the body.
