Obesity is a national epidemic that affects all age levels. The "Rethink Your Drink" campaign was designed to increase awareness of sugar sweetened beverages and help increase healthy beverage consumption behaviors. This module provides educators with numerous examples of how to reinforce the application of the Common Core State Standards for Language Arts and Mathematics using the health-related information which is presented as non-fictional text. Resources, that promote both language arts literacy along with health literacy, are provided as a means of helping students choose healthy behaviors for a lifetime using 21st Century learning strategies.
The official home of the Common Core State Standards, hosted and maintained by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center).
