This Burn, Baby, Burn - The Role of Metabolism and Activity Level lesson plan also includes:
Youngsters watch two videos: one about a gentleman who was able to lose weight by using technology to monitor his metabolism, and the other of a doctor explaining how to increase metabolism. They visit the MyPlate website and create a personal profile so that they can track their food intake. Finally, they take an interactive quiz to find out if they know what snacks contain 100 calories.
- Increases awareness of personal metabolism
- A variety of resource types help make the lesson more engaging
- The link to MyPlate doesn't work, but it is easy enough to locate online
- The linked Women's Health Magazine webpage has the words Sex & Love at the top of the page in huge letters, so you may not want to use it with less mature audiences
- Lesson is underdeveloped; supplement it with other activities
