### CANDY WRAPPERS HOMEWORK

TRICK OR TREAT
SMELL MY FEET
GIVE ME SOMETHING
GOOD TO EAT

WHEN MY CANDY
IS ALL DONE
SAVE THE WRAPPERS
FOR LEARNING FUN

ASK YOUR STUDENTS TO SAVE ALL THEIR CANDY WRAPPERS AND BRING THEM

TO SCHOOL.  HERE ARE SOME YUMMY LEARNING ACTIVITIES YOU CAN DO!

Counting

Count the wrappers. Tally how many in the whole class.

Sets

Make sets with the wrappers.

Sorting

Sort the wrappers. What’s the sorting rule? Can they regroup them?

Graphing
Use the wrappers to graph their favorite candy bar.

Nutrition

Look at the food value on each wrapper. How many calories? How much sugar? Rank the candies by calories.

Vocabulary

Find descriptive words on the wrappers. Make a list of the words and use them in sentences.

Writing

Fold 2 sheets of paper in half and staple to make a book. Children write “I like…” at the top of each page and glue a candy wrapper underneath. This is a book every child in your room can read! Older children could write descriptive sentences about each candy.

Alphabet Letters
Use the wrappers to make a class book called “The Sweet ABC’s.” Write alphabet letters on 26 sheets of paper. Children glue their wrappers to the appropriate letter. Bind pages together to make a book.
Hint! If you don’t have a wrapper for each letter, let children suggest “sweet” words for the page.

Money
Glue candy wrappers to a file folder. Write a coin value by each wrapper. Children count out the appropriate amount and place it on the wrapper.
Hint! For young children, price the candies from 1 cent to 10 cents and give them pennies. Make the amounts higher for older students.

Art

Let children use wrappers to make a collage.

*Finally, take advantage of this “teachable moment” by discussing why sugar is not good for their bodies. What happens if you eat too much sugar? Make a list of healthy snacks that would be better food choices.
