In this chemistry worksheet, students investigate through experimentation the solidifying behavior of some edible fat mixtures by determining their cooling curves. Then they data-log equipment to obtain a large number of temperature readings.
Students participate in a game of chase and learn about healthy food choices. In this physical activity and healthy diet lesson, students play a game of chase by role playing as sugar and fat examples Students name examples of fruits and vegetables when as part of the game. Students discuss food options to learn about healthy diet choices.
First graders listen to story Seven Fat Cats and match the sounds (rhyming, beginning, ending, and vowel).
Students demonstrate their understanding of the Five-Number Summary and Box-Plots by analyzing different nutrition labels from regular and reduced fat items using graphing calculators.
In this Algebra I/Algebra II instructional activity, 9th graders examine the percentage of calories from fat in the diets of Americans who rely on fast food.  The one page instructional activity contains fourteen questions.  Answers are not included.
High schoolers analyze the nutritional content of food by reading labels. In this health science lesson, students calculate the calories and amount of fat in their classmate's lunch. They explain why healthy food choices is important.
First graders listen to a read aloud of "Seven Fat Cats" matching rhyming, beginning, ending and vowel sounds.
An informative introduction and 16 pre-lab questions prepare biologists and biochemists to analyze the double bonds in fatty acids. Using an iodine absorption test, they will be able to order a series of four oils by the amount of hydrogen bonds contained in the molecules. A complete lab sheet provides a place to record and review the data. Each lab group shares their findings with the rest of the class in order to find the class average. 
After learning why it is important to limit salt, fat, and sugar in their diets, divide your class into pairs or groups to complete this project. Each group will create two charts: unhealthy and healthy foods. They will cut out food items from grocery store ads and categorize them properly. What a fun, hands-on activity!
Students study the nutrients found in foods and the food pyramid.  In this investigative instructional activity students will plan a seven day menu built around the food pyramid. 
Sometimes students' favorite restaurants aren't the healthiest! Using this nutrition worksheet, they determine the nutritional value of their favorite foods. Breaking down foods into 6 nutrient groups, students apply simple math to figure out where the calories in fast food comes from. They finally do some research and analysis on nutritional value of foods they would order. Consider providing websites which outline nutritional values for popular fast food restaurant items.
Here is a nice, clean wrap-up lesson plan for your chemistry class when they are studying chemical reactions . They experiment with different oils to make soap. To make it more fun, they are to imagine that they are part of a soap testing panel. There are no scientific explanations written into the lesson plan, so make sure that you have taught them about the process of saponification
Students analyze various beverages to determine vitamin C content. Students research diseases resulting from vitamin C deficiencies and identify countries most affected.
Amateur biologists examine the macromolecules that are foundational to life: proteins,  lipids, and carbohydrates. This worksheet is composed of five pages of questions and plenty of space to write answers. Learners will explore such topics as the function of nucleic acids, differences between saturated and unsaturated fats, and the roles of different polysaccharides. This makes a handy homework assignment for your AP or college biologists.
In this nutrients worksheet, students test 5 items for specific nutrients. The nutrients they test for are carbohydrates, fats, vitamin C, and proteins.
Students practice finding their body fat index using a Bio Impedance Analyzer. In this body fat index lesson, students watch a PowerPoint about the BIA before analyzing their own BMI. They enter the information into a spreadsheet, create a graph, and print it for reference. They use a BMI calculator and write a paragraph comparing the two data sources.
The Olympic Games are indeed a significant and far-reaching cultural component in our international community today, but from where do they originate? Where do our traditions stem from, and how do we choose the sports that constitute this momentous event? Learners begin this lesson sequence by reading the historical background of the Olympics and discovering terms and imagery associated with Greek stories. Then, working in groups, they develop advertising pitches for a product or person that could be promoted by the use of a Greek name or symbol. In the second activity, class members compare and contrast the ancient and modern Olympic Games, and form an Olympic committee to determine the pentathlon of games to be included in a mock Olympic game day.
Students read a story about how cartoon characters are partially to blame for American's obesity problem, and answer vocabulary and comprehension questions about it. In this healthful eating lesson plan, students respond to literature by writing a persuasive essay, use a metabolism calculator to figure out how many calories they burn in a day, read a total fat chart to understand food labels, and create posters to promote healthy eating.
Students study heart disease and how to prevent it.  In this investigative lesson students list heart disease and stroke risk factors. 
Students explore and examine different types of feed used for livestock. They discuss types of feed, the need for energy and health, and create graphs of food compared to categories. Students organize data and complete worksheets on gathered information.
