Stations for Liquids

CONCEPT: Calculating Phe



Participants complete an activity, practicing a variety of skills useful in determining the phe content of liquids.



After completing this activity, participants will be able to:

  • use measurement conversions to calculate how much of a liquid
  • arrange several beverages in the order of their phe content from lowest to highest
  • plan a meal to meet nutrition and phe requirements



Prior to this activity, set up the four stations for the activity sheet.

Each station will require the following:

  • Station 1--answer card
  • Station 2--measuring cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, liquid to measure (such as water), answer card
  • Station 3--pictures or food models of these five beverages (if available), answer card
  • Station 4--can of condensed tomato soup, answer card

Activity Stations
Distribute an activity sheet to each participant. They individually complete each station. When finished with a station, they can look at the answer card to see how they did.

When finished, review the stations together. Any surprises? Discuss the two discussion questions together. What did participants come up with for ideas for dinner? Has anyone ever been in this kind of situation? If so, what did you do?

Give each participant a "Standard Household Measures" handout to use for future reference.
