Scared Silly about Sugar

Candy, candy, candy! Halloween is a great opportunity for your students do discover the oh-so-scary facts about sugar and its effects on our bodies. Did you know that the average American child eats 116 POUNDS of sugar a year? Yep! You read that right!
This is a lesson the students have to see before they believe!!

Students learn facts about sugar in an interactive and fun way. Students will go into further sugar shock when they test their own favorite snack during the sugar test!

This 31 page file includes:
* Detailed directions with pictures of the lesson
* Note home requesting sugary treats
* Colorful bulletin board posters to display student work/results
* Student activity sheets
* True/False statements with answer key

***This lesson is adapted from my Sugar Shock file, which is part of my Nothing by Nutrition unit. Although this is Halloween themed, the information is the same.*****
