4th grade is studying food chemistry this year and got to measuring sugar from common supermarket foods- mainly sugary processed snacks and foods. The visual of seeing how much sugar goes into foods is powerful. They can hold a ziplock bag full o’ sugar  up and check it out. We are just getting into how to read nutrition facts and understand what we are eating.

We collectively made a poster that displays the sugar in servings & packages (quite a difference!). Once again- art and science meets knowledge & creativity.
