3 Classroom Extension Activities These activities: enhance the learning outcomes of the lessons. offer connections to other curriculum areas. can be used for differentiation. can be done just for fun! Connection to Lessons 2 through 4 Have students graph the results of the Drink Diary, choosing the method that best fits with student ability levels. For example, Grade 4 students draw bar graphs most easily, while Grade 5 and 6 students draw line graphs. Have students prepare bar graphs showing the consumption of all the beverages they drank, in order from most to least. Have the students graph the consumption of the top three healthy beverages they drank. Mathematics Curriculum Have the class guess how many cubes of sugar they think the class consumed in the beverages they drank. Compare the estimate with the actual amount, and the suggested daily limit (13 sugar cubes or teaspoons per student) and graph the results. Have the students calculate the percentage of students who drank more pop than milk, and more pop than 100% fruit juice. Grade 6 Do mathematical caffeine comparisons between different beverages. Graph the results of the Drink Diary Page 124 Sip Smart! BC Teacher Resource Guide

4 Connection to Lesson 2 Collect used beverage containers in the class recycling bin. Give them a quick wash! Ask the students to check the labels for the number of sugar cubes (1 sugar cube = 4 g sugar) in each container. Have students calculate the total number of sugar cubes in their beverage and collate the total number from everyone. Mathematics Curriculum Add up the number of sugar cubes. Have the students graph the results. Repeat this exercise a day or a week later. Compare the results. Alternative: Collect the total number of used beverage containers for several classes or the school. If your class gets the whole school then you will have created a School Connection! (see next section). Ask the students to check the labels of their own snack and lunch beverages one day. This activity will be appropriate only if everyone typically carries a packaged beverage, and if they are advised in advance of the exercise so they can make more deliberate choices that day. Create-A-Drink Connection to Lessons 1 through 5 Extend the collection of Drink Cut-outs by having students create their own cut out. Ask students to: choose a drink that is not part of the Drink Cut-out collection yet. research the nutrition facts of their drink, either online or in a grocery store. draw an outline of a drink container (bottle, glass, cup, juice box) on a blank, white sheet of paper; add drink name and colour the container. Optional: one or two key marketing messages on the bottle to help sell the drink. Science and Arts Curriculum prepare the following information on a second blank, white sheet of paper with the same container outline: a nutrition facts label and an ingredient list (Grade 6 only: in order of weight). glue the two parts together and laminate the drink cut out (if available). Display the creations in the school hallways for all students and staff to enjoy! Sip Smart! BC Teacher Resource Guide Page 125

5 Connection to Lesson 2 Note: It is important to be sensitive to the needs of all students. Should some students not be able to participate in this activity for health reasons (such as diabetes), it may not be appropriate for the class to do this activity. Science Curriculum Prepare several containers (3-5) filled with the same amount of water in each. Add different quantities of sugar cubes to each water container to make solutions of varying concentration. For example, fill each container with 2 Litres (8 cups) of water, and add 8 sugar cubes to the first container. Concentration = 1 cube/250 ml water. Label the bottom of each container with the number of sugar cubes added. Pour the different solutions into individual cups for students to taste. Have students try the sugary water and guess how many sugar cubes are in each cup. Have students compare the concentration of the sugary water with the sugary drinks on the How Much Sugar is in Your Drink? poster. Alternative: Add some lemon juice (citric acid) and let the students try again. Count how many students guessed fewer sugar cubes after lemon juice was added. Have students research which sugary drinks contain citric acid. Connection to Lesson 2 (and others) A nutritionist or other health professional could connect healthy beverage consumption to the Grade 5 Life Science curriculum (e.g., milk and milk alternatives to the skeletal muscular system), and how the different body systems are interconnected. Similarly, coaches, athletes and other sports figures could talk about water and the importance of properly replacing its loss and that of electrolytes during sports activities. Science Curriculum Page 126 Sip Smart! BC Teacher Resource Guide

7 Connection to Lessons 1 through 5 Arrange students into groups of 5 or 6. Give each group one set of cutouts (distinguish the sets by team, for example use a different colour of paper for each set). Cut out sets each with the following 12 drink names: 100% apple juice vegetable juice (V8) smoothie (made of banana, 100% orange juice and strawberries) plain 1% milk chocolate milk plain unsweetened soy beverage water peach beverage iced tea sports drink coffee milkshake Physical Education Curriculum Label 4 coloured sheets of paper: 1) Fruits and Vegetables 2) Milk and Alternatives 3) Part of Eating Well with Canada s Food Guide, but not in a food group 4) Not Part of Eating Well with Canada s Food Guide Place the coloured sheets of paper in each corner of the gym. Place the drink names scattered and face-down in the centre of the gym. Time each group to see how long it takes them to put the drinks into the correct categories in each corner of the gym. Ensure that the drink names are in the correct categories and record the time for each group. Alternative: Make up sets of 12 drinks that are somewhat different from one group to the next. Begin with the drinks placed in all of the wrong categories, and have each group race around to rearrange them into their correct categories. Page 128 Sip Smart! BC Teacher Resource Guide

9 Home Connections Home Connections offer resources for parents and caregivers that: contain valuable information to support healthy drink choices. encourage a common learning process. We strongly recommend distributing the material during the program as parents are a key factor in this learning process. On our website you will find printable parent information in the form of a factsheet. We suggest that you send this sheet home after Lesson 1 to let parents and caregivers know what their children are learning in class, and give them tips for making healthy drink choices. Available in Chinese, English, Filipino, French, Hindi, Korean, Persian, Punjabi, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese. Too much sugar is not good for a child s health. The extra calories in sugary drinks can add up quickly. This may lead to an unhealthy body weight, putting a child at higher risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and cancer. The Sip Smart! BC Booklet gives parents and caregivers all the important information that they need to support healthy drink choices. First Set: Only one classroom set of Sip Smart! BC Booklets is included with each teacher resource package. They can be used in-class with the students or distributed out to students to take home to their parents with the understanding that they must be returned at a later date. We suggest that when you send booklets home, after Lesson 2, make sure to ask parents to return them after an appropriate period of time, so that they can be reused for teaching Sip Smart! BC lessons in the future. Second Set: You can download the Sip Smart! BC Booklet from our website. It is available online in 4 languages: Chinese, English, French and Punjabi. Check with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to determine if additional sets of printed booklets may be requested ( Page 130 Sip Smart! BC Teacher Resource Guide

11 Community Connections Community connections show ideas that can: encourage students to take the learning process to a higher level by doing research in their community and having them present their experience and results to the classroom. encourage students to take action as a result of this research, and learn they have a voice in the community. support students future drink choices in real life situations. Note 1: For additional Community Connection ideas, we suggest you talk to the Community Nutritionist and/or other health professionals in your district. Note 2: For any one of the following activities, students can present the results of their research to the class or school using posters or a PowerPoint presentation. The recreation centre and grocery store activities also work well as Home Connections. After skating, playing hockey or doing some other activity at your recreation centre, ask students to take a look at the options for quenching their thirst. What drinks are in the canteen? What drinks are in the vending machines? Do you know what the check marks indicate on vending machine drinks? Next time students are in a grocery store, have them take a look at the drinks on the shelves. Talk with their family about the proportion of drinks that are high in sugar, relative to those that are low in sugar. Compare the number of fruity drinks with 100% fruit juices. Organize a student survey at a sporting event to find out how many students have sports drinks during or after a game or training. Graph the results. Collect facts about sports drinks and for whom sport drinks are appropriate. Research ingredients in healthy drinks that quench thirst during and/or after working out. Based on this research, find or create fun recipes for drinks that quench thirst during and/or after working out. Page 132 Sip Smart! BC Teacher Resource Guide
