Describe (in detail) what you presented on EARTH Day. Be sure to describe your "hook," your activity, and your "wrap up" in enough detail that next year's groups will be able to use it and improve upon it.
My Earth Day project focused on moving away from foods involving high fructose corn syrup. The hook- we held up a can of soda, and asked the kids if they drink soda. then, we held up a tupperware full of the amount of high fructose corn syrup that is in a can of soda. we then explained what high fructose corn syrup is, and why it is bad for both people and the environment. We then had each kid pick a kind of food that was on the table in front of them, and asked them to decide if it had high fructose corn syrup or not. Once they made their decisions, we then told them if they were right or wrong. Then, we wrapped it up and explained again why high fructose corn syrup is bad for you and what foods don't have it so they can avoid it.
Please describe in detail suggestions you have for improving your presentation if it were to be done in the future.
I think to improve this project, we need to work to make this more relevant to the kids and more understandable. Also, i think we should find ways to show them how they can better avoid it.
