Calorie Connection

Students calculate the calories in a Brazil nut and the calories needed for daily intake. In this calories lesson plan, students use calorimetry to measure the change in water temperature heated by the burning of a Brazil nut. They also determine the calories needed in a day based on daily activity and basal metabolic rate.

Lesson Planet has been helpful in finding creative ways to spark students interest in learning new skills. I have used some of the materials and lessons to integrate into the skills that I want my students to master.
