ACTIVITY 1

Read through and discuss poster 3 and write the key messages on the whiteboard.

Ask the students to create a comic strip that supports one of the key messages the students have suggested over the last 2 lessons. There are 12 sections on their sheet. An 8 strip cartoon is ideal to get a message across. If they would like to do more than one, they can. If they need to use more than 12 squares they can.

If the students struggle to think of how to set up their comic strip, role play some situations where a student says no to soft drink and tells their friends why.

Draw an 8- 12 framed comic strip that promotes saying no to soft drink and sugary drinks, including sports drinks.

 

ACTIVITY 2

Teach the students the song and have them sing along.waterbottle_01

"If You Say No To Soft Drink Clap Your Hands"

If you’re healthy and you know it clap your hands
If you’re healthy and you know it clap your hands
If you’re healthy and you know it
Then you really ought to show it
If you’re healthy and you know it clap your hands

If you drink lots of water clap your hands
If you drink lots of water clap your hands
If you drink lots of water
Well you know you really oughta
If you drink lots of water clap your hands

If you say no to soft drink clap your hands
If you say no to soft drink clap your hands
If you say no to soft drink
Then you’ve really had a think
If you say not to soft drink clap your hands

If you avoid sugary drinks clap your hands
If you avoid sugary drinks clap your hands
If you avoid sugary
Then your teeth will be happy
If you avoid sugary drinks clap your hands

If you drink water first clap your hands
If you drink water first clap your hands
If drink water first
It will quench your thirst
If you drink water first clap your hands

If you brush teeth twice a day clap your hands
If you brush teeth twice a day clap your hands
If you brush twice a day
You’ll keep the rot away
If you brush twice a day clap your hands

ACTIVITY 3

Ask them to suggest other lines to the song using the facts on the Freak You Out Facts – soft drink Posters 1 – 3teeth_01

e.g.

If you drink less juice

Then you’re surely not a goose

Rinse your teeth with milk

Then they’ll be smooth as silk

Ask the students for suggestions in how you could let the rest of the school know the key messages about sugary drinks.

They may come up with some of the following which could be completed as a follow up lesson:

1) Record the students singing the song – play at lunch time or before the school bell each day

2) Present the song at the school assembly

3) Put the words to the song up at the canteen

4) In the front office put up a big 3D display of posters or artwork or comic strips

5) Select some comic strips to put into the school newsletter.
