PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I teach in a high school that is very close to a great number of fast food restaurants, and I’m always shocked how regularly my students eat at them. This unit is my attempt to educate them about the dangers of doing so.

Teach important skills for researching, writing, and presenting with this engaging and informative research unit.

During this research project students will:

-research and record information on the obesity epidemic in North America.

-look into the calorie content of their favorite fast foods and work in groups to present their findings to the class.

-do some real-life research into healthy choices, and then conclude the unit with a letter to the editor, a persuasive piece of writing that will reflect their learning. They will need to do a works cited page for both the presentation and the letter.

If you'd like to do more real-life research, check out my project on Cell Phones in Class and on Legalizing Marijuana
