Reading the Labels!!! Healthier Snacks

The team blew up the the nutritional facts on common snacks that kids like to eat. During our Math and Science Night, the kids asked other students to put them in order from worse to best under three categories: Sweets and Candies, Drinks, and Chips, depending on calories, sugars, and sodium. Then the actual products were displayed under a box to be revealed to the participant. Went Well.

How did you accomplish your goals?

With teamwork and allowing students to create the project!!!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

By creating posters that remind the other students of alternative selections when it comes to snacks.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The biggest challenge was time. We overcame it by working after school.
