This lesson plan introduces students to the energy contained within food and encourages them to reflect on individual eating habits. Students record what they ate yesterday in a chart and calculate (in kJ) the amount of energy in the food they eat. Teacher’s notes give tips and full guidance on how to do the calculations.
