Beverages can be chosen by each student or assigned by the teacher.
Eliminate boxes as necessary to meet varying student needs.

Have each beverage and/or category be completed in a different color pen or pencil to enhance learning and reach your visual and kinesthetic learners.
Complete the first row together as a whole group. Complete the next row in small groups. Complete the final row individually.
Assign small groups or individual students a row and then have them share to complete the other rows.
Add additional copies of this chart for more advanced learners or early finishers.
Have some boxes already filled in and have students use the information and data to complete the rest of the boxes.
