Burn, Baby, Burn - The Role of Metabolism and Activity Level

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.
