In this activity, you are going to be looking at the amount of sugar in different servings of different foods. I will need you to do as follows:
- With your group, choose one specific type of each of the following (i.e. Dr. Pepper for a – type of pop)
- Type of pop (1 can or 355 mL)
- Type of regular-sized chocolate bar
- Type of fruit snack or granola bar
- Type of cereal
- Type of juice (i.e. apple, orange) (~250 mL)
- Write down how much sugar is in 1 serving size of each of the items you chose.
- Go to your unit and measure out how much sugar is in each of the food items (use custard cups for each)
- REMEMBER: 1 gram = roughly 1 mL!!!
- Make sure you have a piece of paper (and the actual can/wrapper, if you have it!) by the custard cup that lists the following information:
- Name of item (i.e. “Dr. Pepper”)
- Serving size amount (i.e. “355 mL”)
- Amount of sugar per serving (i.e. “15 g”) –>not the actual amount!!!
- Take a picture of your 5 custard cups together, then upload the picture to an Edublog post that also contains the written information
- Each group member must make a post!
Please make sure you use the following tag with your post! howmuchsugar
This is due tomorrow – Wednesday, September 28th. I will give it a completion mark out of 5.
