Title of Bulletin Board: Fuel Your Performance
Suggested Grade Level: 9-12
Materials: Colored Letters, glue, fitness information
This bulletin board is meant for students to see the 3 major nutrients they need when they are active. This bulletin board is split into before, during, and after activities. Before activity: "Crucial Carbs" using each letter as an acronym. During would be hydration, and after "Post Protein."
On the bottom is a question and answer: Brown cow vs. white cow. Showing that chocolate milk is a great after workout substance because it gives you a perfect balance of carbohydrates and protein.
C= Carbs consumed 1 hr before (can be in liquid form)
C= Consume carbs 2-3 hours before exercise
Water Droplet: Drink water before during and after exercise. You should consume 4-6 oz of fluids every 15 minutes of exercise. Thirst is not an adequate stimulus to drink... it's an initial sign of dehydration. Fluids and electrolytes are lost during activity through sweat.
P= Peanut butter
P= Provides you body with essential amino acids
