Originally we were warned that students of middle school age do
not like to participate and may not be intrigued, we were pleasantly
surprised by the amount of active participation in both lessons. &lso,
shown in the outcome results, many of the students, if not all,
retained the information taught to them. This shows that not only
was the lesson fun for the students but educational as well. The
distribution of pri2es at the end of both lessons was a successful
incentive for students to participate as well.

some of the negative health impacts associated with drinking
sugary beverages
>e-t the students were asked to pour themselves a glass of
orange +uice to test their knowledge on serving si2es. &fter ,
poured an 1o2 glass so they could compare the two. They then
were educated on how to properly read labels and calculate
grams of sugar per serving and per bottle.
& two "uestion "ui2 was given at the end of the lesson to
assess their knowledge. One "uestion regarding negative
health impacts and the other on reading labels.
