Product Description

The sugar content of Halloween candy can be more trick than treat.  In fact, when you crunch the numbers, you’ll find it’s downright scary!

This activity tasks students with using basic unit conversion skills to discover the amount of sugar present in a bag of Halloween candy.  Here’s the scenario: The street your students are trick-or-treating on has 10 houses, but they only have time to visit seven. Given what each house is giving out for treats, students must determine the lowest (and highest) sugar content bag they can put together.  Then, they must determine how many DAYS worth of added sugar they’re eating beyond the recommended amount if they were to eat all the candy in one night.

This resource comes to you as a zipped file that includes:

  • Student activity worksheet (2 pages, PDF)
  • Answer key (2 pages, PDF)

This activity does not require advanced unit conversions skills and would be especially good for students who have not yet mastered unit conversions.

Including an introduction to the activity, time for students to work, and post-activity discussion, I would anticipate this activity to take about 30 minutes.  This activity would be a great springboard for a discussion on healthy eating habits and “how much is too much” sugar.

I wish you and your students a happy Halloween!
