LESSON IDEAS FOR WEEK 20 THEME — NO FOOD, GUM OR DRINK IN CLASSROOMS

1: Circle about food, gum, drink policy and how it supports Eagle Expectations

  • How do you feel about the policy and why?

  • What are the benefits of the policy?

  • What is challenging/hard about the policy?

  • What suggestions do you have and why?

2. Article

  • look for an article about food, gum, drink policies in school (Tamara to look for one and send if possible) and use as reference for circle conversation

  • have students read article and share main points (in whatever way you want)

4. Four Corners Activity

  • Put a poster up in each corner — STRONGLY AGREE, AGREE, DISAGREE, STRONGLY DISAGREE.

  • As you read each statement to them, have them choose a corner, talk with their classmates about why they chose this corner, and then ask one or two people to share out to whole class. Here are some sample statements; feel free to add or modify for your Advisory class…
