For High School Seniors or Older
This WebQuest focuses on learning how to eat healthy at places where the students normally eat unhealthy foods. The objective is to teach students how poor their diet is and how they can correct it. The assignment uses nutrition as an incentive to going on vacation. The students will also learn more about diabetics and proper diet for an adolescent.
I would recommend doing this lesson plan after introducing mypyramidtracker.gov to the students. This will allow the students work faster by being more comfortable with the website.
