In groups, they were given a guided discovery science experiment procedure, one item of food and one can/bottle of drink.
Each group had to estimate the amount of sugar contained in each of their items. After, using the food/drink label and their mathematical ability, they measured the true amount of sugar(grams) contained in the items and stored the sugar in freezer bags.
They also researched some important information about healthy diets and why too much sugar is dangerous for our health.
Finally, each group presented their results and food projects to the class. Some of the results really shocked the pupils, which prompted them to think about their food choices and sugar consumption. We all learned a lot of information about the sugar present in the food and drink we consume.
