2.6 - What's in a Drink


This lesson exposes students to the major role that beverage choices play in our physical health and the obesity epidemic. First students will review a graph depicting amounts of sugar in various beverages, answering questions to help increase their agility with graphical information. Then students will read and discuss two sections from a report by the Harvard School of Public Health on the association between sugary beverages and weight problems and the benefits of drinking water. They will discuss and think individually with questions sets that follow each excerpt. To assess their understanding, students will devise a “top 5” list of benefits of drinking water (over sugary drinks).
