Are You Dehydrated?


Overview:
Drinking water should be an everyday thing! It is important that people know just how important their H2O intake is! There are a lot of functions in the body that are affected by the presence of water or the lack there of. Some times the reason we dont do things is because we are not informed or educated about it. It is a staple in our lives and we cant live without it.

Standards/Objectives:
Standard 6: Students will identify the sources, functions of vitamins, minerals and water and apply appropriate food preparation techniques. Objective 3a: Prevents Dehydration & 3d: Identify symptoms of dehydration and how to prevent it based on current daily recommendations. Affective Doman, Level 5: Characterization The students will support their students in their desire to be hydrated.

Introduction/Set Induction (3 minutes):


Split the class by 75% and 25%. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated, likely half of the worlds population. Describe a scenario to get their thirst mechanism working. Describe a time hiking and they didnt have enough water if any at all.

Transition (20 seconds): Get into groups of 4 or 5.

Lesson Body (time): (Content/Teaching Methods)


Problem-Based Learning: PHASE 1: Identify Problem (1 minute) : Dehydration. Who thinks they drink enough water? Ask those students why they think they drink enough water. Have them tell you how much they drink? What about the students that dont drink enough water, what are their reasons that they dont drink enough water? PHASE 2: Identify KND Information (10 minutes): What do we know about dehydration? What do we need to know? What do we need to do? Discuss what they wrote down. Have students get up and write on the white board what they wrote. That way it will be a visual and they can pull from it again when we discuss it as a class. PHASE 3: Generate Possible Solutions (10): How are we going to solve the problem of people walking around dehydrated? How will we encourage students in our classrooms to hydrate? What activities do you think we need to hydrate ourselves while participating in? PHASE 4: Choose Most Viable Solution (10): Which solution makes the most sense and seems the most feasible? What will these ideas take to make happen? Cost? Do we have a budget? How will we get the word out about dehydration and getting clean water to people? PHASE 5: Report Solution (10): A class discussion would give groups the opportunity to share. The students that are hesitant to share may feel more comfortable sharing in their groups and their ideas would then filter into the class discussion. Give them each a large piece of paper and markers. List the ideas so that the class can see them as you summarize.

Transition (2):

Clean up and have the students get back to their chairs so that you can summarize and

discuss the solutions that each group came up with.

Summary/Closure (8): Bring up the main ideas of dehydration again. Ask them about the facts that they
learned. How is it that they personally are going to stay hydrated, what works for them individually? Go over the solutions that each group came up with.

Assessment/Evaluation: Did all of the students participate somehow, even if it was just within their
groups? Were they able to answer the summary questions and reiterate what they learned during the class time?
