This is an assignment for students to create a nutrition table for blueberries. The subject area is NUTRITION, which is not on the TpT list of subject areas (shame on you, TpT).
This is a downloadable, color-coded, Excel, nutrition-label file that allows your students to create nutrition tables, especially for fruits and vegetables. Please observe that such tables do not exist in a typical, supermarket, produce section. Ask your local supermarket to do so.
IMPORTANT: Once you download the Excel file, you will need to enable it so that your students can use it as a template.
How does a student use this Excel file? Try blueberry as an example. Go to Google, and ask the question, what is a blueberry. You will receive a list of URLs. Click on the URL that states, “Blueberry – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”. You will be transferred to the home page of an article about Blueberry. Scroll down many pages until you observe (on the right-hand side) a small image of a carton of “Blueberries, raw”. The associated table lists the complete nutritional value per 100 grams of blueberries. Print, or capture-and-print, this table for your class. Have your students focus on the percentage data, rather than on micrograms, milligrams, or grams.
Assuming that your students know how to use Microsoft Excel, have them complete the downloaded nutrition-table template. They should save the completed result.
If they do not know how to use Excel, please collaborate with your mathematics teacher to teach them. Students only need to learn how to enter data into Excel, and nothing else.
As an educator, I am excited about the use of this Excel template. Why? Because (a) students learn a practical use for Excel; (b) they learn what is a nutrition table; (c) they learn how to go to Wikipedia and create the nutrition table for any fruit or vegetable; (d) they become able to compare the nutritional characteristics of produce; and (e) they can learn about the very high nutritional characteristics of nuts and seeds.
If you are interested in my additional TpT products about nutrition, please consider the following:

NUTRITION LABELS, FRUITS AND VEGETABLES (supermarket series)
If you like my Enrichment Chemistry approach, please consider
Book 5 Aromas, Fragrances, and Odors (Enrichment Chemistry Series). In my opinion, molecular aromas is an excellent way to introduce chemistry to lower-grade-level students.
Nutrition is a subject that is important to a child for the rest of his/her lifetime. I believe that this topic should be introduced early and often in grade school.
