Not So Sweet: Investigating Science and Health Questions About Sugar and Our Bodies
Is sugar as dangerous to our health as cigarettes? What happens when we ingest sugar, and how much do we consume on a daily basis? Using several New York Times articles, learners search for evidence to answer important questions like these and construct claims about sugar consumption, health correlations, and responses from industries to health initiatives in the United States.

SEPARATION OF A STARCH-GLUCOSE MIXTURE USING GEL FILTRATION
Students make a starch-glucose solution and pour it through gel in order to separate the starch from the glucose. They examine how starch is a larger molecule than glucose and test for the presence of these substances using other chemicals.

Eating healthy can be a challenge, especially for people with special dietary needs. After learning about standard nutritional needs for adults, learners take on the role of a dietician and work together to create a menu for one of the following unique nutritional needs:
- High blood pressure
- Lactose intolerance
- Type 2 diabetes
- High performance athletes

Energy Flow Through an Ecosystem
One of the key concepts in life science and biology is the cycling of energy throughout an ecosystem. Learners can take notes on the topic using the vocabulary included within the presentation. From producers making their own food through photosynthesis to top-level consumers getting very little energy from food, all the basics are covered in 25 slides.

Irish Potato Products
Students investigate the effects of low and high temperatures on potato products. In this potato products lesson plan, students demonstrate the effects of storage conditions on Irish potatoes. They investigate the effects of frying, they determine the dry matter in a potato by removing the water and they determine the amount of sugar using glucose strips or a glucometer.
