We kicked off Unit 2 with the following entry task:
In your notebook, make three columns with the following titles:
Carbohydrate Lipid Protein
List as many foods as you can in the appropriate columns.
Next, students were shown an image of a traditional Thanksgiving meal and we discussed the components of the meal, placing each food item in the appropriate food category. Students then used this thinking as they took the Unit 2 Pre-Assessment which called on them to label the parts of a cheeseburger and place those food parts into the food categories from the entry task. The remainder of the Pre-Assessment asked students to explain the processes of digestion, absorption, and biosynthesis.
Students who completed the Pre-Assessment early were able to spend the remainder of the class period finalizing their Egg Lab reports (due tomorrow by midnight).
