And my final tip of the day, you can get a cheap set of white boards for your class by
going to Lowes or Home Depot and getting a large piece of shower board cut down to
small sizes. I think it's sold in 8 feet by 10 feet size. You can have that cut down to 28-
32 smaller rectangles and voila, you have a class set of white boards! The large sheet
costs about $12 to $15. Some stores charge you to cut it, some do it for free. Once cut
you'll want to use some duck tape to wrap the edges of the boards, so figure another $5 in
tape, So for about $20 or max $30 you can have a full class set of white boards which are
AWESOME for review activities or a quick assessment on something like adding teaspoons,
tablespoons and cups. The white board markers can get a bit expensive though so that is
the one down side. When I use the boards I wait to the last possible moment to pass out
the markers, and collect them first as soon as we're done. That limits the doodling time
which is the biggest marker waste. I try to stock up during sales too if possible.

Create a quiz game by preparing separate cards for each nutrient inlcuded in the display. Place all the cards in a box or paper bag. Divide the class into teams. In the first round of play, players draw a card and must correctly state the function of th enutrient for 3 points. In round two, players must state two food food sources other that the one illustrated for 2 points. The team with the most points wins the game and everybody has learned a bit about nutrition.Materials needed:Colored construction paper for flower and title lettersFelt strips for flower stems. Could also use paperFood photographs cut from magazines (Remember the date, December 1974, and think Google images!)Black marker for lettering the leavesPersonal additions: I see this as being yellow flowers with orange centers, green stems and leaves. If you have access to a die cutter you could cut the flowers and leaves very quickly. In fact the cutter I have access to only does a 4 inch flower but for my small BB that might work great. This was intended to be a group/class activity but I can see doing it in the summer. Putting it up, then doing a power point to go along with it. Maybe a Smart board gameThem take the leaves off and let the kids match them to the correct foods.


HIV Transmission Game
Purpose: To increase awareness of how quickly HIV and other STDs can be spread and how they can be stopped and to illustrate effects of peer pressure
Materials: Hershey’s Hugs & Kisses, Hershey’s Almond Kisses, index cards, pens/pencils, and a small brown paper bag for each TAP member
Time: 30 minutes

Planning notes:
  • In each participant’s bag (except one) place a mixture of approximately 10 to 12 Hugs & Kisses and one marked or unmarked index card. In one participant’s bag put 10 to 12 Almond Kisses (instead of Hugs & Kisses) and an unmarked index card. Put a star (*) on the bottom of the bag withAlmond Kisses.
  • Write on a second index card: Do not participate. When asked, tell anyone who wants to exchange candy, ‘I do not want to exchange hugs and kisses.’ Place the card in a bag with Hugs & Kisses and put an "A" on the bottom of the bag.
  • Write on two separate index cards: Do not participate with anyone other than your partner. When asked, tell anyone (other than your partner) who wants to exchange candy, ‘I do not want to exchange hugs and kisses with anyone other than my partner.’ Place each card in a different bag withHugs & Kisses and put an "M" on the bottom of each bag. Give these two bags to the two participants who are willing to sit in the front of room.
  • Do not place any of the seven, marked cards in with the bag with Almond Kisses.
Procedure:
  1. Ask for two participants who are willing to be partners and to sit in the front of the room throughout the entire exercise. Give each of these two participants a bag marked with an "M."
  2. Hand out the other bags to the remaining participants. Explain that each participant is receiving a bag with Hershey’s Kisses and an index card. Ask each participant to pull the card out of his/her bag and follow the instructions on it (if there are any) and to keep secret any instructions on his/her card.
  3. Tell the participants that they are to exchange candy and that they should write on their index cards the name of everyone with whom they exchange candy.
  4. Give participants about five minutes to exchange candy and to write down names. Then, have everyone return to his/her seat.
  5. Find out who got the most signatures.
  6. Ask the one person whose bag has a star (*) on the bottom to stand up. Explain that this was the person who started out with Almond Kisses and that, for the purposes of this exercise, the Almond Kisses represent HIV infection.
  7. Then, ask anyone who has an Almond Kiss in his or her bag to stand up. Explain that, because they exchanged Hugs & Kisses for Almond Kisses, they, too, have are infected with HIV.
  8. Ask everyone who is still seated to check their index cards for the name of anyone who is standing. Ask participants to stand up if they see the name of someone who is standing on their index cards. Continue to ask participants to stand until everyone except the three participants with the "M" and the "A" on the bottom of their bags are standing.
  9. Explain to the participants that this activity contains an error because someone might have received an Almond Kiss (HIV infection) and then given it away again. By contrast, you cannot give away HIV. Once you have it, you can share it with others; but, you can never get rid of it yourself.
  10. Remind participants that this is a game. No one can become infected with HIV because he/she eats a particular kind of food nor by sharing or exchanging food.
Discussion Questions:
  1. Did anyone notice anyone who did not stand up? Introduce the "abstinent" participant and the "monogamous" partners. Ask them how they felt not playing. How did the others feel when these people refused to exchange candy with them?
  2. Why is it difficult not to participate when everyone else is participating?
  3. How did the person with the Almond Kisses (HIV infection) feel?
  4. The one person whose bag had a star did not know he/she was "infected" with HIV. How could we have known ahead of time?

I do clothes pin races, where I hang a line of yarn and have buckets of clothes pins that have vocab words for each team. Then I split the class into groups. One student reaches into a bucket of examples and definitions. That person reads aloud the clue, then the groups race to find the clothes pin with the word on it. One person then runs the clothes pin with the word on it up to the line and clips it on, usually giggling. The first team to put the clip on the line gets to read their word out loud. Then the second team, etc. If the word is the correct choice, then they get points awarded. 3 points for first place, 2 for second and 1 for third. Because the word has to be correct, the students don’t get discouraged if three teams get up there first. It’s fun.
